Skyler Taylor, KCB School Registrar and Instructor tells us about the many qualities you gain by being involved in dance and why Kansas City Ballet School is a wonderful and unique place to begin your training today.
Q: What are the benefits of taking a ballet class?
A: First of all, it is fun! Instructors at Kansas City Ballet make dancing and taking class enjoyable. They are friendly and willing to help each student. Ballet also has several benefits for the body, mind, and spirit. It will give you confidence, coordination, strong and flexible muscles, and the desire to learn more. Dance is a great way to lessen the stress from the day. Come try a class today for free and see what we mean!
Q: What is special about Kansas City Ballet School?
A: At Kansas City Ballet School, most ballet classes have live music. I love teaching and dancing to live music, because it is beautiful and inspiring. We offer several styles of dance for teens and adults, so you will find a class and level that is right for you.
Q: What do you hope our students accomplish in a year?
A: In the Academy Division, we have several goals for our students. The Kansas City Ballet School syllabus is designed to help each dancer reach their full potential. We also hope to help them grow as artists and give them performance opportunities to share their love for dance with others.
Q: What are you looking forward to most this year?
A: I am really looking forward to teaching Level 3 Jazz this year. For several of the students, this will be their first time experiencing Jazz. I am excited to see them move in a new style and see their personalities come to life.
