Kansas City Ballet’s Virtual BARRE KC Soiree

Kansas City Ballet’s annual BARRE KC Soiree, which was a virtual event this year, was held on April 17th. Guests enjoyed a party package of wine and delicious desserts and coffee, while one winner received a golden ticket, good for a one-night stay at The Inn at Meadowbrook. Proceeds support 16 Reach Out And Dance (R.O.A.D.) Scholarship Schools. The Kansas City Ballet program reaches more than 800 children in the Kansas City Public School District and Turner Unified School District by providing a 12-week dance residency for all third grade students.
