In a spirited collaboration between The Sarasota Ballet, Barbara Banks Photography and State of the Arts Gallery, nine portraits of Sarasota Ballet Company members are now available for purchase in downtown Sarasota.

"This partnership launches these artist-athletes to new eyes, for the shared benefit of The Sarasota Ballet,” explains Banks. “The images show a dimension of dancers beyond performance, offering an opportunity to contemplate the perfection of stillness."

Featured in the images are: Principals Ricardo Graziano, Danielle Brown and Ricardo Rhodes; Soloists Ricki Bertoni, Ellen Overstreet and Juan Gil; Coryphee members Kristianne Kleine and Sareen Tchekmedyian.
