The Oklahoma City Youth Ballet is a performing ensemble comprised of students from Levels 5 and 6 at The School of Oklahoma City Ballet, and directed by Penny Askew. Selected via audition, these pre-professional dancers present a Fall Concert each November, participate in productions such as The Nutcracker with our professional company, and perform in the end-of-year Spring Performance and for other events such as the Oklahoma City Arts Festival whenever possible.
