The Performing Arts Series brings internationally recognized acts to dazzle Kansas City–based eyes and ears in the relatively intimate space of Yardley Hall. Lauded by the New York Times, choreographer Lar Lubovitch coordinates lithe bodies through the swift, public execution of modern dance. Greedy ears, meanwhile, can hoard the pleasures of Haydn, Mozart, Strauss, and the Beatles as performed by the renowned Vienna Boys Choir, whose top-secret youth serum has kept its carolers young for the 500 years of the organization's biblically long life. Viennese composers vie for your aural affections during the Philharmonic of Poland's first-ever U.S. tour, with arias spotlighting soprano soloist Izabela Matula as she sails her voice atop classic compositions by Lehar and Verdi. The New York Times has also given an appreciative nod to The Joffrey Ballet, whose classically trained foot workers leap and lunge to the orchestrations of Tchaikovsky, Richard Rodgers, and Philip Glass. Check out Johnson County Community College's website for more information about the series, and each individual performance.

At TIKITUM, fun sits at the top of a pyramid of priorities, followed by art, science, nature, and sensory integration. Yet each of those priorities gets its due and then some inside the exploration space, which engages kids' five senses with different hands-on displays and activities. Kids ages 3 to 7 can come by for an open house, or attend an art class in the LAB. The classes might blend science and art with play, for instance by exploring the lights and colors of outer space. There are even classes for children with special needs such as autism and ADD.

Burgeoning artists in their junior and senior years of high school spend four days immersed in the topics of their choice, picking from disciplines such as interior design, game arts, and photography.

Pupils who opt for lodging rest up for back-to-back, intensive courses in the local Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites, in between a packed agenda designed to proffer a taste of art school life.

Brooks Institute of Photography attendee Kevin Keith, alongside of his wife Ashley, has chalked up more than seven years of wedding and lifestyle photography experience. With subjects dressed their best in wedding frocks and dapper tuxedos, the husband-and-wife team captures every moment of the momentous occasion, from their first glances at each other before the ceremony to the tail of the limousine as it drives away from the reception.

Candid moments like these are the signature of Kevin Ashley Photography, where Kevin and Ashley work together on wedding and engagement photo shoots, along with portraits and lifestyle photography. In addition to directing poses and snapping photos, Kevin and his wife have been imparting their wisdom to aspiring photographers for more than five years by sharing tips and techniques during private lessons and group photography workshops. And for those who prefer to take photographic matters into their own hands, Kevin Ashley Photography also rents out a LIGHTBOX photo booth for events and parties.
