This is Sarah Chun’s first year with Kansas City Ballet. The 19-year-old from Chicago performed in Carmina Burana at the Kauffman Center this past weekend. She sat down with us to talk about her experience performing for the first time with KCB.

Random Fact: Sarah eats a banana before every performance. Why? Sarah says, “Supposedly it’s supposed to calm your nerves; and it’s good for you!”
