“The Sarasota Ballet excels in providing such quality experiences not only for patrons and subscribers but also for young people.”

–  Brian Hersh, Program Director for Any Given Child Sarasota

Ballet is an art form that touches us deeply and gives expression to feelings not easily put into words. For twenty four years, it has been the mission of The Sarasota Ballet to enrich lives, captivate emotions and strengthen the community through the art of dance. The Company is renowned for its breath-taking performances and visionary education programs. This exciting artistic force has achieved stature and recognition by following its intention to be a major resident and touring company presenting the highest quality of classical and contemporary dance.

The Sarasota Ballet’s Education and Outreach Program is designed to provide meaningful opportunities for our community to experience and learn about ballet, cultivating and educating a new generation of lifelong arts advocates. Our dancers and instructors engage students not only in the schools through interactive demonstrations, but also by inviting students to watch rehearsals and performances.

Our collaboration with the Kennedy Center’s Any Given Child Initiative and the Sarasota County Schools curriculum department has allowed us to offer arts integration into the classrooms. Teachers can use this program as a tool to not only introduce a beautiful art form but to also teach the Florida Common Core requirements of several subjects.
