Kansas City Ballet’s Second Company is a busy bunch. In addition to dancing corps roles in company productions like The Sleeping Beauty (March 31-April 9) and taking their own classes to continue their dance education, they also perform around town when opportunities arise. Currently there are two public performances on their schedule in March. We’ve listed info about both below. Hope to see you there!
