Kansas City Ballet will open the annual “New Moves” program on Friday, April 1 at the Bolender Center. The performances which take place in the Michael and Ginger Frost Studio Theater will run through April 9. Audiences will experience six world-premiere works from six very different choreographers including Jennifer Archibald, Andrew Skeels, and Stephanie Martinez, as well as three company dancers: Sarah Chun, Charles Martin, and Ryan Jolicoeur-Nye.

We had the chance to ask choreographer Jennifer Archibald a few questions about her all-male ballet The Better Man.  Archibald, company dancers and staff are pictured below during rehearsal of her piece. Watch the interview and rehearsal of her piece here.
