Forty members of the Lakewood Ranch Women’s Club took a special backstage tour of the Sarasota Ballet March 31.
Diane Shaw, program chairwoman for the women’s club, organized the day with Sara Sardelli, outreach coordinator of the ballet company.
The morning began with a brief history of the Sarasota Ballet and a glimpse at a life of a ballet company member.
Members toured the Asolo Theatre and learned how it is prepped for a ballet performance, before enjoying lunch in the upper theater.
Sarasota Ballet Director Iain Webb served as the lunch’s guest speaker.
