Kansas City Ballet is committed to sharing its joy of dance with all people, and education is an important component of that mission.

We offer pre-curtain talks, called Footnotes, as well as pre-performance study guides with our school matinees, and offer our audiences a special opportunity to hear dance artists and special guests talk about dance through our KCB Lecture Series..

Ballet has a rich history. Beginning in France in the fifteenth century it has evolved into the intricate art form that you see today performed by companies such as Kansas City Ballet. Kansas City Ballet has compiled some resources on the world of ballet that we hope you will find helpful.
