2023 Children's Showcase

Spring Showcase Information

Showcase Information

The Children’s Showcase is an end of year demonstration for students in Fundamentals of Dance, Pre-Ballet, Level 1, and Adaptive Dance. The Showcase will be held at the Bolender Center Frost Studio Theater on Saturday, May 13, 2023. Below you will find more details regarding this performance opportunity.

Rehearsal Information

All rehearsals will take place during the student’s regularly scheduled class times beginning in March. We encourage students to have good attendance for the remainder of the school year so they don’t miss any rehearsals for the show.

Performance Information

The theme this year is inspired by the book “Animal Poems for Children”.  This book is a collection of animal poems written by different authors. Each poem explores what it’s like to be a particular animal.  Each class has been given one of these animal poems as inspiration for their showcase piece.

What does the performance look like?
This year’s showcase is based off of the children’s book “Animal Poems for Children”. Each class will be given a different animal poem and selected piece of music for the showcase. Their teacher will use the skills they have been practicing in class to create a short piece for the students to demonstrate. Each performance is around 30 minutes long.

Do I need to buy tickets?
No, there are no tickets for the Children’s Showcase. However, families are limited to bring 2 adult guests to the performance since we will have limited seating. Please note that current Kansas City Ballet Performance Protocol dictates that audiences members DO NOT need to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Masks are currently not required for audience members.  We will also be providing a LIVE Stream of the showcase so that other family and friends may watch the showcase from the comfort of their home. This link will be sent to families in the week leading up to the showcase.

Are there any fees for this performance?
There are no performance or costume fees for this show. All students are asked to wear their class uniform for the showcase.

Is there a t-shirt I can purchase?
