Are you looking for ways to get more involved with Kansas City Ballet? The Kansas City Ballet Guild is a group of over 200 members who serve as advocates for dance and ballet in the Kansas City community. We provide financial assistance to the Kansas City Ballet through the Nutcracker Boutique, the Annual Ball, and other special events. Join the Guild and enjoy fun opportunities with a community of dance enthusiasts!
JOIN THE BALLET GUILD TODAY
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 gather 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. While Member dues allow us to conduct Guild business, Relevé dues allow us to also sponsor dancer attendance at Guild events and provide holiday gifts for the dancers. Please consider the Relevé option when joining.
Guild Membership Levels
- $50 Guild Member
- $150 Guild Relevé Member
All members are encouraged to be a Kansas City Ballet season subscriber and attend the annual Ballet Ball.
The Emerald City Ball
Saturday, October 6, 2018
InterContinental Kansas City At The Plaza
The Ball benefits Kansas City Ballet and celebrates the Ballet’s world premiere The Wizard of Oz, which opens on October 12. Join Dorothy and friends for a memorable evening of extraordinary décor, superb cuisine, great music to dance to and an extra-special glimpse into the fantastical world of Septime Webre’s The Wizard of Oz.
The Guild also sponsors and staffs the Nutcracker Boutique at all Kansas City Ballet Nutcracker performances. We sell traditional and whimsical nutcrackers, ballet and Nutcracker themed ornaments and other Nutcracker inspired items. Net proceeds benefit the Kansas City Ballet. To register and volunteer, please visit our Volunteer Registration Center.
