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.
