KC Ballet Launches On Demand Experiences And More

Kansas City Ballet Artistic Director Devon Carney today announced the launch of KCBallet@Home, a compilation of on demand performances, public online dance work outs, classes, podcasts, and more. Details can be found at KCBallet@Home.

"On behalf of everyone at KCB - dancers, musicians, staff and faculty - we truly appreciate your investment in Kansas City Ballet and our arts and culture community," stated Carney.

"We wish you all good health and the stamina to weather this storm. And, as soon as we are able, we will be back to performing, teaching and sharing this art we hold so dear. In the meantime, we have launched KCBallet@Home to share special moments from past performances and other exclusive content via our social media pages because we know that dance has the power to transport us, if only for a moment, to a place of peace and joy."
