The Sarasota Ballet would like to wish you a happy World Ballet Day 2019! Celebrated internationally for the past six years, World Ballet Day is a global initiative co-produced by the Royal Opera House to bring ballet fans behind the scenes of the world of dance and to display the passion that goes into every performance. World Ballet Day 2019 falls on October 23rd, but in case you missed it, we though we'd leave this page up for belated celebrations!
We at The Sarasota Ballet are especially proud of our efforts preserving the legacy of Sir Frederick Ashton; as such, in celebration of World Ballet Day as well as our Director's recent attendance of the National Museum of Dance Hall of Fame induction ceremony of Ashton, we wanted to share a collection of clips from an assortment of our Ashton performances, to showcase his contributions to 20th century ballet. Enjoy!
