Kansas City Ballet is an AGMA company. They perform three repertory seasons in Kansas City, plus Nutcracker. For a full list of repertory, click here.

Bring resume and current dance photo to the audition.

$25 required audition fee for non-AGMA members.

To audition for Kansas City Ballet, it is definitely BEST to attend an open audition in one of the designated cities (Kansas City Ballet has hired 85 percent of its dancers from open auditions).

VIDEO Auditions

If you are unable to attend an open audition, you may send a current video link, photos and resume to be considered for an audition in Company class with the Kansas City Ballet. Please review the KCB Audition Requirements prior to submitting your audition.

THESE SPACES ARE VERY LIMITED. Video links submitted from YouTube and other online formats are preferred over hard copy mailings.

Non-AGMA members are required to pay a $35 video audition fee. Please send a check or money order made payable to Kansas City Ballet or contact Katie Pilgreen at 816-931-2232 to pay via credit card.
