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) cancelled the spring 2020 season. 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.
