A celebration of the golden age of jazz,
the ballet pays tribute to the era of nightclubs
and dance halls when Kansas City
was considered the ‘Paris of the Plains.’ Experience what the
New York press called a “shrewd romp that put
a smile on everyone’s face.”
Kansas City Ballet also brings you the nationally
acclaimed Common People, choreographed by
Margo Sappington and set to the spicy vocals of
actor William Shatner with music by Ben Folds,
plus a world premiere titled Energy Made Visible by internationally
acclaimed Karole Armitage. You’ll be
dazzled by this unique night of dance!
