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.

- Dancer Christopher Vo is so musically attuned that he blurs the line between music and dance. Katarzyna Skarpetowska and Brian McGinnis are so attuned to each other that they dance like one chord. All 10 dancers are true artists in their own right, and the "music" they make is as wondrous as that of any Coltrane quartet. – Pamela Squires, Lar Lubovitch Dance Company, The Washington Post
