Sarasota Ballet has been getting good buzz since Iain Webb took over as artistic director last season. Webb, an Englishman, has been programming some interesting repertory by choreographers such as Frederick Ashton, Kenneth MacMillan and Dominic Walsh. The company opens its season this weekend with five performances at the FSU Performing Arts Center. The program includes Renato Paroni's Rococo Variations, Antony Tudor's Lilac Garden and Robert North's Troy Game, pictured here. Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday. The Sunday evening performance was added last week when the four other performances were nearly sold out. $20-$75. (941) 351-8000 or toll-free 1-800-361-8388;

In other dance news, Le Salon de Danse, featuring choreographer Michael Foley, was rescheduled for Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Studio@620 in St. Petersburg. $10, $15. (727) 895-6620;
