KCBS 2017 Summer Intensive Ends

Just five short weeks ago, 181 students arrived from all over the country, the region, the city and even a couple from Bulgaria to be part of Kansas City Ballet School’s 2017 Summer Intensive program. Most will leave more skilled and with more friends than when they began. Summer Intensives are like that, and especially in Kansas City.

While they were here they learned from a wide variety of teachers, as well as from each other. They pushed themselves to new heights. They also learned more about Kansas City through a number of excursions including a visit to Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun, attending a 2015 World Series Champion Kansas City Royals game, and more.

Today marked the final day of the program when the students were able to demonstrate what they’ve learned for an audience near and dear to their hearts, their families.

“It is hard to believe that our 2017 Summer Intensive at Kansas City Ballet has come to a close!  What a lovely group of dancers attended this year, and it was pretty amazing to watch the progress that the students made during these 5 weeks,” said KCB School Director Grace Holmes. “Thank you for sharing the summer with us and I hope to see you all again at KCBS!”
