An interactive introduction to ballet and dance

The Sarasota Ballet is delighted to announce a new educational opportunity for Sarasota and Manatee County Schools.  Students will learn about the rich history of ballet and dance from its beginnings in the 17th Century through to the present day.  They will get to see dancers from The Sarasota Ballet’s Margaret Barbieri Conservatory performing excerpts from famous ballets and also get a unique behind the scenes look into the every day life of a professional dancer.  Students will also get to dance themselves in this interactive presentation.

This new program is open to students from Grades 4-12 and will involve educators and dancers coming into schools.  It could be presented at an assembly for all students, or for specific school groups.
