Restaging a Ballet: Roles, Rules and Responsibilities
As part of Kansas City Ballet’s commitment to engage the community-at-large, we are offering a unique lecture series called Dance Speaks. This series is intended to provide in-depth, behind-the-scenes insight into the creative process choreographers and dancers embark on before the curtain rises. This Dance Speaks will feature Judith Fugate (stager for George Balanchine’s Theme and Variations) and Maria “Maiqui” Manosa (stager for Val Caniparoli’s The Lottery).

Tickets cost $20 and are on sale now.




KCB II and Trainee dancers present an exciting 15-45 minute program of varied ballet repertoire, tailored for your audience and event.


A 45-minute workshop appropriate for Pre-K and early elementary school students, bringing stories to life through creative movement, music, and a costume show and tell. Wonderful for library story hours!

master classes
