Welcome to the Bolender Center
On the west edge of the Union Station campus, the Todd Bolender Center for Dance & Creativity lays at the heart of downtown Kansas City and the vibrant Crossroads Arts District. It is the home of Kansas City’s premier dance company and the region’s best ballet academy. The Bolender Center is also a creative center for our community.

The Todd Bolender Center for Dance and Creativity is a fully renovated, historically significant structure that has been updated and is fully compliant with all ADA requirements. The accessibility services and accommodation methods in the Bolender Center include: ample accessible parking spaces convenient to entrances with drop-off areas; appropriate doorways and entrances that include automatic opening features; ADA compliant braille and tactile signage; restrooms that fully comply with ADA disability requirements; easy elevator access to all levels of the facility; and ample accessible seating for performances and exhibitions.

Need an unique space for a business reception? Want to host your group to learn more about dance? Wish to liven up a luncheon or dinner? The Bolender Center has rental spaces available to meet almost any need, plus convenient parking. If you’ve ever thought about taking a ballet class as an adult, our Studio classes are the answer. Interested in jazz, hip-hop, yoga, Nia or Pilates? We’ve got that, too. We even offer ballet birthday parties!

The Todd Bolender Center for Dance & Creativity has so much here for you to see and do…it all starts with your first step.
