About Kansas City Ballet Guild

Are you looking for ways to get more involved with Kansas City Ballet? The Ballet Guild is a group of over 200 men and women whose purpose is to serve as advocates for dance and ballet in the Kansas City community, provide financial assistance to the Ballet, and have a great time with like minded people!



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.

Guild Membership Levels

  • $50 Guild Member

All members are encouraged to be a Kansas City Ballet season subscriber and attend the annual Ballet Ball.
