Health and Safety

In an effort to keep our faculty, staff and students as safe as possible during these times proof of full COVID-19 vaccination will be a requirement for participation in the 2022 Summer Intensive. Proof of vaccination is not required to attend the Summer Intensive auditions, only to attend the program should you/your dancer be accepted.

Based on CDC definitions an individual is considered ‘fully vaccinated’ two weeks after their second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine or two weeks after their dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. As of right now, the CDC recommends a booster shot 6 months after the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines or two months after the Johnson and Johnson vaccine but the booster is not mandatory to be considered ‘fully vaccinated’ and KCB is not currently requiring proof of a booster to attend the Summer Intensive.

No religious or medical exceptions will be considered.

Kansas City Ballet reserved the right to amend or change our Health and Safety policies at any time in accordance with CDC guidelines. Click HERE for more details on KCB’s current Health and Safety Protocols.
