The History of HAYB . . . HAYB has maintained its goal of receiving a 501(c) (3) non-profit status through years of community service characterized by dance education, free seminars, and charitable donations to other organizations such as The Christy Henrich Foundation and Joint Adventures, a local organization supporting children with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. The Company has made a commitment to provide affordable, quality, local ballet to the community. Additionally, the youth ballet has become a regular attraction at the historic Folly Theater in downtown Kansas City. They have produced traditional ballets such as, The Nutcracker, Coppelia, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, along with their original ballets, Alice In Wonderland, Little Mermaid and The Wizard of Oz,

Annually, the HADC studio is magically transformed into a Dinner Theatre Playhouse. The community is invited to a Mother/Daughter Tea Party where the performers can be seen up-close-and-personal as they perform excerpts from the ballet. The performers are in full costume (indicative of the upcoming performance . . . Wizard of Oz, Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Little Mermaid, etc.). Following the tea party where attendees are served tea, finger foods, and sweets, performers are available for autographs and photographs. The tea party is the one HAYB fundraiser held on a yearly basis.
