On Friday, March 9 at Pennway Place Event Space, BARRE KC hosted nearly 150 attendees at The BARRE Soirée—a cocktail event complete with drinks and delicious small bites and desserts, plus a performance by Kansas City Ballet’s Second Company. The event also featured DJ Ashton Martin, voted Best of KC “Party/Club DJ” by Pitch Magazine. A Silent Auction and a Kendra Scott Jewelry Pull were also included.

Proceeds raised will help fund 16 Reach Out And Dance (R.O.A.D.) Scholarship Schools allowing the program to reach 800+ kids in the Kansas City Public School District and Turner School District. R.O.A.D. is a 12 to 24-week dance residency program designed for 3rd and 4th grade students in schools in Missouri and Kansas. R.O.A.D especially helps children who learn in non-traditional ways, promoting self- esteem and confidence by incorporating movement lessons in conjunction with their studies.

BARRE KC is the premier organization for young adults interested in supporting Kansas City Ballet.
