The Sarasota Ballet is the Gulf Coast of Florida’s only professional ballet company. Since 1990, the Company has been committed to enriching lives, captivating emotions and strengthening the community through the art of dance. Under the leadership of Director Iain Webb the company has grown to national and international recognition. Maintaining a diverse repertoire that includes works by world-renowned 20th century choreographers as well as some of the most sought after choreographic talents of today, The Sarasota Ballet offers audience members the unique opportunity to experience ballets that have never been seen in Florida and rarely in America. Presenting both full-length classical ballets and brand new world-premieres, the Company receives critical acclaim from New York and European press.
The Sarasota Ballet has performed Diamonds at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in 2011 with The Suzanne Farrell Ballet. We were delighted the Sarasota Ballet was invited to perform Les Patineurs in 2013 as a part of Ballet Across America.
The 2014 Season ended with a four day Festival in honor of Sir Frederick Ashton that was received with acclaim by the audiences as well as press.
