The Nutcracker - December 01 - December 02, 2018

Metropolitan Ballet



I grew up dancing with Metropolitan Ballet of Wichita, and that experience helped me to become a professional ballet dancer. My former artistic directors, June Landrith and Nancy Hervey provided so many opportunities for the company dancers and worked tirelessly on our behalf. I am truly grateful for what they and Metropolitan Ballet of Wichita did to ensure Wichita and the surrounding areas could showcase the talented dancers of the region. I am proud to follow in their footsteps as Artistic Director of the new company, Metropolitan Ballet, Inc., and proud to be part of such a community based organization.


Metropolitan Ballet, Inc. owes heartfelt thanks to the wonderful volunteers who work with our organization and the sense of family they create.  They are invaluable. Also, I would like to thank the dancers who are the pride of Wichita and the surrounding areas. It is a joy to work with them.


Thank you for supporting Metropolitan Ballet, Inc. and the dancers of the community. Have a Joyous Nutcracker Season and Happy Holidays!


Jill Landrith
