PRE-PROFESSIONAL DIVISION

The Pre-Professional Division is the most comprehensive ballet education available in our region, split into two programs; Evening program and Daytime program. Students are expected to attend classes 6 days a week and broaden their knowledge through additional classes such as Variations, Modern, Jazz and Body Conditioning. The focus of this program is refining technique while fostering artistry. It prepares students for professional careers or further studies such as our Trainee Program and KCB II. All pre-professional division classes are held at the Bolender Center. Performance opportunities include annual School Performance and The Nutcracker. Acceptance and casting for the production is at the sole discretion of the Artistic Staff of the Kansas City Ballet’s professional company. Pre-Professional students may also be invited to audition for the school’s performing group, Kansas City Youth Ballet.
