SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY OCT 5, 2019

On Tuesday, October 29th, The Sarasota Ballet will present the annual On Pointe evening, a fundraising and awareness event for the company’s Dance – The Next Generation drop-out prevention program. Dance – The Next Generation (DNG) has been nurturing the development of at-risk schoolchildren since its founding in 1991 by The Sarasota Ballet Founder Jean Weidner Goldstein. Designed to engage students who have been identified as being at risk of dropping out of school, DNG instills self-esteem and discipline through dance instruction and extracurricular support. The program is free of charge to the students’ families, with The Sarasota Ballet providing full scholarships, dance clothes and shoes to the students. On Pointe will take place at 6pm at the FSU Center for the Performing Arts. If you would like to attend, please RSVP by Wednesday, October 23rd, by calling 941-225-6519 or emailing events@sarasotaballet.org
