Safety & Health Policies for Attending Performances
At Kansas City Ballet, we’re dedicated to making sure that our patrons, staff and performers are comfortable returning to our performances. KC Ballet is still taking a number of additional precautions and adjustments to our policies and procedures to ensure the safest possible environment for everyone in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. We ask that patrons be considerate of the safety of their fellow guests at all times so that everyone can have an enjoyable and safe experience at the theatre.
KC Ballet is closely monitoring federal, state and local guidelines and our policies and procedures will continue to evolve dependent on COVID-19 status at the time of each event. We encourage you to check back on this webpage prior to your visit.
For performances at the Kauffman Center, please visit their Health and Safety page.
On your visit to Kansas City Ballet’s Bolender Center, you’ll notice that we’ve taken steps to reduce touchpoints and protect your safety. Here are the key policies we’ve put in place.
Following CDC guidelines and for the safety of all, we strongly encourage KC Ballet staff (including part-time and full-time employees, dancers, and volunteers) and patrons to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
Masks Required for All
At least through summer, masks are required for all persons on site until further notice. Your mask must cover your nose and mouth and be in place the entire time while in the Bolender Center. Neck gaiters and vented masks will not be permitted.
We strongly encourage purchasing tickets online and selecting electronic ticket delivery to reduce the handling of cash or in-person transactions. If you are unable to purchase online, you may call 816.931.8993.
Social Distancing Standards
Please remember to maintain social distance at all times. Late summer, we will evaluate the current federal, state and local guidelines to determine seat placement.
Bolender Center Cleaning Procedures
Common areas and high touch points are routinely cleaned and sanitized.
Sanitizer stations are available in the common areas of the Bolender Center.
Daily Health Screenings
All Kansas City Ballet staff and dancers are required to perform and pass an at-home Health Check before they enter the building.
