Second Company

The School  >  Second Company

Kansas City Ballet’s Second Company includes KCB II and the Trainee Program, both products of Kansas City Ballet School. The Second Company provides talented young dancers a professional company experience as prelude to their joining a professional company.


KCB II performs throughout the region through public performances, lecture demonstrations, residencies and workshops, enabling the community to experience live dance in a public setting. Learn More

Trainee Program

The Trainee Program, which is tuition based, aims to nurture and develop young aspiring post-secondary dancers’ technical skills and artistry, ultimately preparing them for a professional dance career by bridging the gap between the student and KCB II. Trainees participate in some company classes and have the opportunity to be considered for performances with Kansas City Ballet Company during the season and also perform in tandem with the KCB II in their own educational and community outreach performances throughout the year. Anthony Krutzkamp is the Second Company Manager.

To be considered for the Trainee Program, a dancer should attend a company audition (preferred) or our five-week Summer Intensive Program.
