Tappers perform at Sarasota Farmers Market Saturday

   If you go to the Sarasota Farmers Market this weekend, you can get some free entertainment, and maybe some dance instruction, to go along with your fresh produce.
   Asolo Repertory Theatre is sponsoring a series of tap workshops for local high school students this week and next, led by two members of the cast of "Pulse," Asolo's current tap-based show.

   Christopher Erk and Anthony J. Russo are conducting the workshops. The workshops culminate in a group performance by participants immediately following the Saturday, June 15 matinee of "Pulse" in the Mertz Theatre.
   But you don't have to wait until then to see the student dancers. One of the workshop sessions will take place at the Sarasota Farmers Market 10-11 a.m. Saturday, June 8. Participants will give demonstrations and hold a group tap jam session by the fountain near the intersection of Lemon Ave. and State streets.
   "Pulse" runs through June 16. It's really fun. For tickets or information, call 941-351-8000 or visit
