Event: Sarasota Ballet Tour – January 23rd

Are you a fan of ballet? Have you ever wondered how productions are created or what dancing with a company is like? Now is your chance to find out! On January 23rd, BNC Sarasota will take a backstage tour of the Sarasota Ballet at the FSU Center for Performing Arts. We will get an up-close glimpse at the workings of an active dance company from dance classes to the craftsmanship behind costume creation. Along the way we will meet some of the people responsible for bringing magical productions to life.

Under the direction of Iain Webb, the Sarasota Ballet has gained the global reputation as one of the best ballet companies in the USA. Iain Webb, a dancer since age 14, took over the Sarasota Ballet in 2007 after an extensive performance and production career. Under his guidance, the Sarasota company will have performed 146 ballets and divertissements by the end of the 2017-2018 season.

This tour involves standing, steps, and stairs.
