Join us for the first time or renew your membership by clicking above to order online. You may also download this form and mail it in with your payment.
Our programming is changing which means we meet both during the daytime and evening. We have special presentations from guest choreographers, dancers and staff who share behind the scenes details of upcoming performances from music to costuming and staging. We love to party and especially enjoy it when the dancers attend, too! We throw three highly attended luncheons every year (Fall Kick Off, Nutcracker and Spring Celebration). We see movies, get discounted tickets to other performing arts venues and generally enjoy meeting others who share our interests in the arts and in the Kansas City community. We have two levels of membership.

All members are encouraged to be a Kansas City Ballet season subscriber and attend the annual Ballet Bash.
In 2016 members experienced a new Kansas City Ballet gala known as the Ballet Bash, presented by the Kansas City Ballet Guild. Guests were treated to the sounds of various musical acts and a variety of tasty foods and drinks at the Todd Bolender Center for Dance & Creativity. Proceeds benefited both Kansas City Ballet and Kansas City Ballet School. Details coming soon for the 2017 event.
The Guild also sponsors and staffs the Nutcracker Boutique at all Kansas City Ballet Nutcracker performances. Must-have items for sale include KCB T-shirts, dance figurines, accessories, and gifts for little boys and girls! Net proceeds benefit the Kansas City Ballet. To register and volunteer, please visit our Volunteer Registration Center.
