A GLIMPSE OF FUTURE STARS THE THIRD CARRENO DANCE FESTIVAL SHOWS MATURITY IN CELEBRATING THE TALENTS OF ITS YOUTHFUL DANCERS By Elinor Rogosin A&E Writer The Carreno Dance Festival, which features an evening of ballet with students from its master class intensive program in Sarasota as well as invited stars, has morphed from a type of summer school celebration — which marked the conclusion of its first year — to an enjoyable presentation of young performers in its third year. Yes, aside from the stunning opening, A Contemporary Mood, choreographed by Carlos Dos Santos for the occasion, excerpts from The Sleeping Beauty Suite were used to give the students an opportunity to shine in traditional classical choreography, not unlike many school recitals. And the presence of Jose Manuel Carreno and American Ballet Theatre star (Above) Jose Manuel Carreno and Julie Kent dance a waltz to the Strauss melody of The Merry Widow.
