KBT Board President / CEO


After Jan Foody's passing in April 2015, Brigid DeVries took the reins as sitting Board President. A member of the original Ballet Guild and board, Brigid has watched Kentucky Ballet Theatre grow into the successful organization it has become. Brigid not only believes in the educational value of classical dance, but the ability of KBT to serve surrounding communities through its outreach programs. Brigid previously served as the Commissioner of the Kentucky State High School Athletic Association and brings a wealth of management and leadership experience to the organization. Brigid also works with several other non-profits throughout Central Kentucky.





Sarah Robinson

Executive Director


Sarah Robinson has been a part of the Kentucky Ballet Theatre family since its inception in 1998. Sarah grew up dancing in the Kentucky Ballet Theatre Academy and was proud to perform in many KBT professional productions, as well as Ballet Under the Stars. Sarah graduated with her Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Political Science from the University of Kentucky and received her Juris Doctorate Degree from Chase Law School at Northern Kentucky University. She attributes much of her success in her educational and professional career to the discipline and performance attitude that she learned under the leadership of Kentucky Ballet Theatre’s world-class instructors. After spending 10 years as the Senior Marketing Director for Fayette Mall, Sarah is excited to bring her knowledge of marketing, social media, sponsorship, and business development to support Kentucky Ballet Theatre. Outside of her current role with CBL Properties as the General Manager of Fayette Mall, Sarah enjoys spending her time giving back to the community through volunteer roles with several nonprofit organizations in Lexington.
