Kansas City Ballet Guild volunteers gathered recently to work on plans for this year’s Ballet Bash, which will be held on Saturday, October 1, at the Todd Bolender Center for Dance & Creativity. This will be the Ballet Guild’s 49th annual Gala, and the first time the event has kicked off the Kansas City Ballet’s repertory season. The event will serve to highlight the first show, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Please mark your calendars for this not-to-be missed evening of cocktails, delicious cuisine, and dancing. Net proceeds support the Kansas City Ballet and Kansas City Ballet School. More information about Ballet Bash is available here.
