Dancing During Distancing
On behalf of everyone at KCB – dancers, musicians, staff and faculty – we truly appreciate your investment in Kansas City Ballet and our arts and culture community.
We are wishing all of you good health and the stamina to weather this storm. And, as soon as we are able, we will be back to performing, teaching and sharing this art we hold so dear.
In the meantime, we have launched KCBallet@Home to share special moments from past performances and other exclusive content via our social media pages because we know that dance has the power to transport us, if only for a moment, to a place of peace and joy. That is what we all need more of right now.
KCB Dancer Chats
Please join us for our Free Facebook Live Dancer Chats; a new community engagement and education series designed to engage the broader public with professional dancers at Kansas City Ballet. Each Dancer Chat provides an opportunity for the public to get to know different company dancers through relaxed, informal conversations sharing their unique perspectives on various topics of the day. Moderated by prominent members of the community and arts lovers these engaging Chats will reveal backgrounds, extraordinary experiences, and strong relationships between professional artists.
