Friday Weekend Edition

"Commercial non-office space that's suitable for a dance studio is very expensive and hard to come by, but this new space was just manna from heaven."

- Barbara Worth, Sarasota Cuban Ballet School
 

[New Facility]  Sarasota Cuban Ballet Grows Into New Location
Andrew Fabian, andrew.fabian@srqme.com

For the last 10 years, the Sarasota Cuban Ballet School (SCBS) has operated out of a patchwork of retail spaces in a shopping center off Beneva Road. Though the facilities had ample square footage and a few sections of sprung floor, the space belied the level of excellence the school has achieved by way of the prestigious accolades won by many of its students in national and international competition, including the Prix de Lausanne and the Youth American Grand Prix. But on the cusp of the organization’s 10-year anniversary, a new space will help usher in a new decade of success. 

That new space is in the Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida 18-acre campus located on the corner of Cattlemen Road and Proctor Road. Designed by renowned Sarasota architect Guy Peterson, the multi-volume structure houses the Gulf Coast Event and Conference Center, a high-ceilinged, brightly lit space that will allow the organization to host larger in-studio productions. “Commercial non-office space that’s suitable for a dance studio is very expensive and hard to come by,” says SCBS administrative director Barbara Worth, “but this new space was just manna from heaven.” 

The space’s flexibility and amenities also offer significant advantages over the existing one. A kitchen, nicer bathrooms and offices mean staff and students can sink into a place that feels a little more like home, and it means Worth no longer has to step outside to take a phone call during active training sessions. For the school’s pre-professional students—arguably the most visible and talented members of the school—the space also provides classroom spaces and reliable Wi-Fi so they can get their schoolwork done in the same place where they train six hours a day. “In the current space, they’d sometimes have to find a corner of the studio that had the best Wi-Fi connection,” says Worth.

And the school secured the space just in time for some sold-out Nutcracker productions tonight and tomorrow. “Normally we have our productions at the Venice Performing Arts Theatre,” says Worth, “but with COVID-19 still putting a lot of in-person events in limbo, we thought it’d be easier to use the new space.”  

“Even though we’ve achieved incredible success in modest facilities, having a new facility—aside from allowing us to expand the school numbers—also helps with our international appeal. It gives us a fresher feel to bring in more exposure.”

SCBS moves into the new space during their winter break from mid-December to mid-January. The school is currently fundraising for sprung floors.

[Holiday Concert]  Celebrate the New Year at The Van Wezel With Salute to Vienna Concert

The treasured Salute to Vienna New Year’s Concert returns to the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall on Monday, January 3 at 7 p.m. Audiences can expect timeless music, dazzling costumes, breathtaking dances, and beautiful flowers. For more than 25 years, Salute to Vienna New Year’s Concert has combined these elements to create an unforgettable New Year’s celebration that continues to enchant and delight audiences across the United States and Canada. The exuberant music of Johann Strauss and his turn-of-the-century counterparts is brought to vibrant life in a joyful spectacle featuring European singers, dancers, and the Strauss Symphony of America. This beloved concert event draws direct inspiration from Austria’s famous Neujahrzkonzert, broadcast annually on New Year’s Day to millions of viewers worldwide. Maestro Alastair Willis, an expert in Viennese music, will lead the orchestra and the audience on a journey through the Golden Age of Vienna with wit, charm, and more than a few jokes along the way. Beautifully costumed performers from Dimensions Dance Theatre of Miami will enhance the concert-going experience, evoking the majesty of a bygone era. Arias and duets from jubilant, comedic operettas will be performed by soprano Ute Gfrerer and tenor Brian Cheney. Energetic, lighthearted, and full of romance, Salute to Vienna New Year’s Concert is a musical treat for audiences of all ages.

Community members are asked not to include any items that are older than 2-3 years, opened or used, dented/damaged, meant for decorations or displays, or that do not have a label. The Food Bank of Manatee is a PLUS program of Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee. The Food Bank of Manatee provides nutritional assistance and caring supportive services to individuals in need throughout Manatee County by distributing food to nonprofit agencies including food pantries, soup kitchens, and churches. Together with its partners, All Faiths Food Bank provides healthy solutions to end hunger in our community. All Faiths Food Bank, the only food bank and largest hunger relief organization in Sarasota and DeSoto counties, serves individuals in need through its programs and member network that includes nearly 200 human services organizations, schools, faith-based and secular organizations, and other groups that serve the community.  The organizations plan to continue the food collections at Goodwill locations.

Sheriff Kurt A. Hoffman is pleased to announce the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is hosting its fifth annual holiday toy drive benefitting the 12th Judicial Circuit of Florida’s Guardian ad Litem program. There are currently more than 1,300 children from throughout Sarasota, Manatee and DeSoto counties who have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect and as such, appointed a Guardian ad Litem.

The initiative begins Wednesday, December 1 and continues until Sunday, December 12.

To date, with help from agency members, residents, local businesses and organizations, the sheriff’s office has donated more than 7,000 gifts including $20,000 in gift cards to the Guardian ad Litem program. Thanks to a partnership with the Sarasota Memorial Hospital Public Safety Department, public safety personnel are once again generously donating a holiday tree which will serve as the collection site for the toy drive.
