From everyone at Kansas City Ballet, we’d like to thank those who were able to make it to our fall production featuring Fancy Free, along with four other spectacular pieces. Also, a big congratulations to the dancers and production staff for putting on an amazing show!
As audience members, you don’t get to see what goes on behind the scenes. From dancers hurrying to get into place, costume changes, managers calling lighting cues among many other things, backstage can be a quite chaotic but also an exciting place. Here are a few glimpses behind the curtain from our fall show….

This past Friday, the Michael and Ginger Frost Studio Theater here at Kansas City Ballet’s Bolender Center was filled with people looking to get a glimpse into the rehearsal process of our company dancers. They also were given a behind the scenes look at KCB’s fall show featuring Jerome Robbins’ Fancy Free, which opens this Friday Oct. 11 and runs through Sunday, Oct. 20!
Check out some photos below from the First Friday event. To view these dancers in full costume and onstage at the Kauffman Center performing 5 spectacular ballets, you can order tickets online at kcballet.org or call 816.931.2232.
