Kansas City Ballet Auditions

Audition for KC Ballet

Kansas City Ballet’s main company employs 30 dancers under the direction of Devon Carney.

Carney is creating a sophisticated, diverse repertory that offers powerful entertainment for all audiences. This is accomplished through commissioning new works by some of today’s most sought-after choreographers, giving rise to young talent, acquiring existing works by master choreographers, and introducing new interpretations of classic full-length productions.

Dancers rehearse in Kansas City Ballet’s seven-studio home, the Todd Bolender Center for Dance & Creativity, in downtown Kansas City.

KCB is an AGMA company. They perform three repertory seasons in Kansas City, plus Nutcracker. Repertory List
