Work Begins On New Home For Kansas City Ballet
Kansas City, MO – Kansas City Ballet officials announced Wednesday that renovations are underway at the new permanent home for the company.
The Todd Bolender Center for Dance and Creativity, slated to open in 2011, will be located in the Union Station Power House building. The historic 1914 power plant will house the Ballet's school and seven studios, including one that doubles as a 180-seat theater.
The costs are estimated at $38 million, including $7 million for an operating endowment. Officials say they're about $6.5 million short of their fundraising goal, including $3 million for construction and $3.5 million for the endowment.
