KC Ballet School

The Kansas City Ballet Academy

The KCBS Academy mission is to provide excellence in dance training to a diverse body of students.

Our comprehensive approach is based on the traditions of classical ballet and prepares students for the widest spectrum of opportunities within the artistic community and professional dance world. Students develop skills associated with academic success including self-discipline, self-confidence and the ability to concentrate and collaborate. Our students recognize the importance of process and quality of work at the same time setting high standards for themselves in all areas.

Currently, the Academy has more than 600 students, making it one of the largest ballet schools in the region. All classes are taught by KCBS’ acclaimed faculty in our state-of-the-art studios. We are pleased to offer live piano accompaniment in many of our classes.

Season Subscription Offer

We want to make ballet even more accessible to our students. As a KC Ballet School Parent, if you buy a subscription for yourself your KCBS student’s season tickets are free (and your other children under 21 are 1/2 price).

Once you choose a package, your date and time will be reserved for the rest of the season.
