Our People

School Staff & Faculty

To be the very best, you must train with the very best.

The School maintains a faculty of over 50 instructors. Our prestigious faculty are joined from time to time by current KC Ballet Company members and artistic staff, as well as renowned guest teaching artists. Many classes are taught to live piano accompaniment, a crucial element in developing the child’s understanding of the relationship between music and movement.
