Windsor joined The Sarasota Ballet as an apprentice in 2007 and was promoted to a member of the Corps de Ballet for the following Season. At the start of the 2010 – 2011 Season she was promoted once again to the rank of Coryphée.
Over her fourteen Seasons with the Company, Christine Windsor has entertained and enthralled audiences in Sarasota and elsewhere across the country as part of tours to the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, New York’s Joyce Theater, and New York City Center.
Principal roles of hers include the White Couple pas de deux in Sir Frederick Ashton’s Les Patineurs; The Betrayed Girl in Dame Ninette de Valois’ The Rake’s Progress; and Gertrude Lawrence in Joe Layton’s The Grand Tour. Featured roles included Sir Frederick Ashton’s Jazz Calendar; Ricardo Graziano’s Symphony of Sorrows; Antony Tudor’s The Leaves are Fading; and Christopher Wheeldon’s There Where She Loved.
“It has been enormously rewarding watching Christine develop over the years we’ve worked together,” said Margaret Barbieri, Assistant Director of The Sarasota Ballet. “I’ve known Christine ever since she was very young and trained with me at London Studio Centre, so it has been wonderful; to share so much with her throughout her dancing career. She has become a beautiful dancer and a loving wife and mother, and while I will dearly miss coaching her and watching her perform, I look forward to seeing where this next phase of her journey takes her.”
