We have just ONE MORE performance of Dancers Making Dances this Friday, March 1 at 6 p.m. We wanted to share with you an interesting fact about one of the choreographers. Not only did KCB Company Dancer Travis Guerin choreograph his piece, but he created the music he used as well!

Watch the video below to hear about his process of choreographing and composing.

Here in a few weeks, KCB will be having its first performances of Dancers Making Dances, a choreographic showcase featuring new works created by company dancers of Kansas City Ballet and other guest artists. This year features 8 new works, including pieces choreographed by Artistic Director William Whitener, and Mary Pat Henry of Wylliams/Henry Contemporary Dance Company.

Company Dancer Ian Poulis is one of the KCB dancers who will debut a piece in the showcase. In the video below, he talks about his work, where he found the music, and why no one in the US has ever heard it!
