2022 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 14, 2022. 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 based on the book “Allegro”.  The story is about a little boy, Allegro, who is learning how to play piano and wants to give up. The music on his page come to life and takes him on an adventure through some of the masterpieces of classical music. Each class has been given one of these classical works to perform to.

How does my child participate?
At the bottom of this webpage is a registration form for you to complete for your student to participate in the Showcase. Please have it filled out by March 12. (Students do not need to be vaccinated to participate in the Showcase.) RSVP your student!

 

What does the performance look like?
This year’s showcase is based off of the children’s book “Allegro.” Each class will be given a different musical composer 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 required for all 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 fees or costume fees for this show. All students will be instructed to wear their regular dress code to the performance.
