Health & Safety Update
Kentucky Ballet Theatre is always committed to the health and safety of all our patrons, KBT Academy students, parents, professional dancers & employees. Our organization is closely monitoring developments and following the advice of the CDC, as well as state and local agencies.
In response to the Lexington-Fayette Community Health Department (LFCHD) and Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton’s recommendation that organizations postpone or cancel all public, in-person events as part of the region’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) response – Kentucky Ballet Theatre (KBT) will be cancelling the March 21-22, 2020 performances of “Making A Pointe!” at the Pam Miller Downtown Arts Center (PMDAC) which is now closed until further notice. Our patrons are our livelihood and the reason our dancers perform each season. We thank you for your continued support of Kentucky Ballet Theatre and value you as a member of our family.
UPDATE: Kentucky Ballet Theatre's production of Pinocchio has been postponed to October, 2020.
All onsite classes are currently cancelled through May 31, 2020. We will continue to follow the FCPS schedule and all recommendations from our local and state governments.
One full week of classes have been recorded and uploaded to multi-level facebook groups. Parents must join their child's correct level group to access all of the videos.
