For four years, Ken Glazebrook produced and distributed Spirit of Dance, a monthly one-hour television program about all types of dance. The programs aired at Cape Cod Community Television (C3TV) in South Yarmouth, Massachusetts, USA and became a valuable addition to the dance film collections of the New York and Toronto Public Libraries, university dance departments and individuals around the US and Canada. Ken Glazebrook has also produced a number of programs about artists, children and adults with disabilities, traditional Scottish musicians, and a series with the psychologist Henry Smith-Rohrberg on past-life regression. He teaches classes on documentary filmmaking at C3TV. He lives on Cape Cod (Massachusetts, USA) where he also makes furniture and grows organic fruits and vegetables.
