The Sarasota Ballet has announced that its founder Jean Weidner Goldstein, has provided $1 million in funding to the ballet. The planned gift, which comes through the Frank and Katherine Martucci Legacy Society, will help the ballet continue its programming, as well as impact initiatives like the Margaret Barbieri Conservatory for pre-professional classical dancers or the high school drop-out prevention program "Dance—The Next Generation," which provides more than 150 students a year with free education enrichment and dance tutelage.
