We are celebrating 40 years with Kevin Amey!

Kevin Amey has served as the company and tour booking manager of Kansas City Ballet since 1983, and was promoted to general manager in 1998. He has had the pleasure of working at length with three of the company’s Artistic Directors Todd Bolender, William Whitener and Devon Carney, as well as Executive Directors Michael Kaiser, Martin Cohen and Jeffrey Bentley, on producing more than 300 works.

His background in the arts began as a young performer, actor, singer, and dancer. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in acting and directing from Avila College, and a graduate degree from the University of Missouri - Kansas City in Theatre Arts. He has served a variety of roles throughout his career in the world of performing arts, and has been essential to Kansas City Ballet during his last 40 years here.

Congratulations Kevin!
