Join Us for the 3rd Annual KC Dance Day!


Our 3rd Annual KC Dance Day will be taking place on Saturday, August 24! Hundreds of people will flood the hallways and studios of the Bolender Center to take FREE dance classes and watch FREE performances all day long!

From 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. this event will offer a variety of classes for kids and adults of all ages. From Zumba, Yoga, and Ballet to creative movement and pre-ballet for younger children, we provide something for everyone.


Pre-registration is encouraged, and is available online.

You also will be able to take world dance classes from the very performers you’ll see live in our Michael & Ginger Frost Studio Theater! Irish, Spanish, Indian and Hawaiian are just a few of the cultures that will be represented. You can find a more detailed list of cultures and times of performances and classes on our website.

The day will conclude with an exhibition by the company dancers of Kansas City Ballet, followed by a brief autograph signing! You won’t want to miss this rare opportunity to meet our professional dancers along with our new Artistic Director Devon Carney and pick up your FREE 2013-2014 KCB Season Poster!


We welcome everyone to come at 9 and stay all day, and to help with that, there will be food trucks outside of our building for you to purchase food. The trucks will be outside of the Bolender Center roughly between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. (subject to change).

This event is sure to be a great time, and we hope to see you all there! Be sure to come early, as we’ll be giving away free goodie bags to a select number of people! Be sure to check out the video below and see for yourself what KC Dance Day is all about!


Summer Intensive 2013: A Day In Pictures

It’s the second week of Summer Intensive here at Kansas City Ballet, and the studios of the Bolender Center are bustling with activity.

Below are some snapshots to give you a look into a day in the life of a KCBS Summer Intensive Student!

This is just a small glimpse into the daily schedule of our students here at KCBS Summer Intensive. Along with ballet technique and pointe, they take variations and learn more about partnering in the pas de deux class. They are exposed to an even broader range of dance forms including modern, flamenco and character.

As you can see, it’s already been a busy summer, but we can tell they’re all having fun! Check back for later posts that will include more photos and interviews from students!
