Financial Aid

Nourishing Potential

At Kansas City Ballet School we are committed to excellence, no matter where we find it.

We honor your commitment with need-based financial aid, which we make available to students enrolled in Levels 2 or above. The amount of financial aid available in a given year is dependent upon contributions by Kansas City Ballet donors and careful consideration is given to all requests for assistance.



  • Academy students in Level 2 or above are eligible to apply for Financial Aid.
  • Applications for Financial Aid must be submitted by June 14th.
  • Financial Aid is awarded for the school year (September – May).
  • Applications are reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee and aid is based on varied criteria.


  • Pay the registration/uniform fee and first month’s tuition in full upon enrollment. Financial Aid will be applied to the remaining months.
  • Maintain a 95% or higher class attendance rate.
  • Account must be in good standing each month to participate in additional KCBS fee-based services.

Our 2024-2025 Financial Aid Application is closed.
