ArtsReach serves nearly 100 Title I schools across central Oklahoma. The program begins with an eight-week curriculum that covers ballet terms, positions, history, famous dancers and stagecraft. At the end of the eight weeks, students attend special performances by the Oklahoma City Ballet at the Civic Center Music Hall, where the company performs. The ArtsReach program began with 1500 students and has grown to reach more than 175,000 students and educators. Support from both local and national foundations enables Oklahoma City Ballet to offer this program to all students free of charge.
