Artistic Director

Iain Webb - Born in Yorkshire, England, Iain Webb started ballet at 14 and moved to London at 16, where he trained for 2 years with The Rambert School of Ballet and a year at The Royal Ballet School. He further spent a year as an apprentice with The Sadler’s Wells Royal Ballet, where he was offered a full time position. In 1989 he transferred to The Royal Ballet, Covent Garden, to perform character roles that included Bottom in Ashton’s The Dream, the Small Sister, Dancing Master and Napoleon in Cinderella and Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle and Pigling Bland in Tales of Beatrix Potter; MacMillan’s The Doctor in Different Drummer and a Client in Manon; and Sancho Panza in Baryshnikov’s production of Don Quixote. In 1996 Webb retired from The Royal Ballet, but was invited back as a guest artist to give three farewell performances at Covent Garden as the Small Sister in Ashton’s Cinderella. After retiring as a dancer, he was invited by Matthew Bourne to be Rehearsal Director for The West End, L.A. and Broadway seasons of Swan Lake and continued to work with Bourne on his production of Cinderella. In July 2007 Webb took over the directorship of The Sarasota Ballet and under his leadership the Company performed 124 ballets and divertissements through the 2014 - 2015 Season, including 35 world premieres and 6 American premieres.

Instead of giving someone a single gift, how about a year’s worth? When your friend or family member accesses information throughout the year, they will be reminded of your thoughtfulness. Also, it's a great last-minute present idea that doesn't require you to leave the house.
