Building Relationships and Inclusivity Through Dance for a New Generation of Excellence

Oklahoma City Ballet is excited to present our new initiative, BRIDGE. This initiative has a special focus on education, programs, mentorships, and partnerships to help better serve our community and promote diversity and inclusivity within our organization. Oklahoma City Ballet wants to be a BRIDGE for the community, providing a connection to ballet and the amazing ways it can impact the lives of those within our community. This crosses all aspects of our organization from our professional company, the Yvonne Chouteau School, and our community engagement programs.

Upcoming BRIDGE Events:
