THE SARASOTA BALLET SCHOOL 2018-19

Welcome to the new school year at The Sarasota Ballet School.  We are excited for our brand new studios which will be opening at 1400 Boulevard of the Arts in the Fall.  We will keep you updated on when the studios will be ready but stop by to see how the work is progressing.  We will be part of the Rosemary Square development which is now a hub for the arts in Sarasota.  Until the new studios open, all classes will take place either at the FSU Center for the Performing Arts or at DNG, 500 Tallevast Road.  Please see below for details.

NEW FOR 2018-19
Hand in Hand for ages 2-3.  Your toddler will discover the wonderful world of dance with the help and assistance of their parent or care giver.  The class will run in 8 week sessions, and you can register your child for up to 3 sessions per year.  This class runs from 10am on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and will be a fun and educational experience for you and your child.

Choreography - a new class for our Senior Level will be taught by Patricia Strauss, who leads our annual Choreography Workshop.  Students will have the chance to develop their choreographic skills and prepare pieces for the annual Choreography Workshop performance.

ROYAL ACADEMY OF DANCE
The Sarasota Ballet School is one of a few schools in Florida to offer examinations and assessements with the world-renowned Royal Academy of Dance.  Students from Pre-Primary and above will have the opportunity to learn the RAD syllabi from our certified teachers.  The benefits of training towards a goal is very valuable for young students and we are sure your child will enjoy this opportunity, unique to students of The Sarasota Ballet School.
