General Information

Since its inception over 50 years ago, the School of Dance has established a national reputation for its excellence in training in ballet and modern dance techniques, for its production values and for the quality of its graduates. Firmly rooted in a performance-oriented philosophy, the school is composed of 10 faculty members, two ballroom dance instructors, two Pilates body conditioning instructors, six accompanists, two full-time musicians, six graduate teaching assistants and approximately 90 majors. Students develop their technical and expressive gifts guided by a faculty representing an unusually fine blend of professional and academic excellence. Students work in a pre-professional environment dedicated to their development as performers, artists and educated individuals. During completion of the University’s general education requirements, dance students learn about related arts from theoretical, historical and theatrical perspectives, while simultaneously perfecting their skills as emerging dance artists. Oklahoma Festival Ballet and Contemporary Dance Oklahoma provide performance opportunities on campus and throughout the state and region through fully produced performances, laboratory performances and lecture demonstrations. In addition, a production choreographed by students is presented on an annual basis. International tours are another important aspect of our students’ experience.

The School of Dance is housed in the Donald W. Reynolds Performing Arts Center. This beautiful, state of the art facility includes two large dance studios, a Pilates body conditioning studio, media center, faculty and staff offices, archive room, a gallery/reception area and the exquisitely renovated performance hall (formerly historic Holmberg Hall). Additional studios are housed in the adjacent Fine Arts Center as are the production facilities for Elsie C. Brackett Theatre and the School of Drama. This combination of facilities ensures that our students have the best possible environment in which to develop their technical, expressive and intellectual gifts and move toward professional careers.

Programs for Excellence

Oklahoma Festival Ballet and Contemporary Dance Oklahoma, resident performing companies of the School of Dance, provide numerous, diverse performing opportunities for dance majors in both disciplines. Each company gives an annual series of performances on campus in our home theatres. Company members also present the annual Young Choreographers’ Showcase each January. Additional performance opportunities exist through musicals and operas, in addition to lecture demonstrations in public schools, informal studio concerts and state, regional and international tours. Our companies have been honored with 14 invitational performance tours to Taiwan, Japan, France, Paraguay, Ecuador, Austria, China and Mexico.

Company members are selected by audition at the beginning of each semester.  The BFA and MFA programs also include performance requirements.

Our companies have been chosen for the National American College Dance Festival Gala Performance at The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts as well as receiving awards at the regional ACDF conferences (South Central). In addition, the companies have been featured in Dance Magazine, Pointe Magazine, the New York Times and the foreign press. The companies perform original works as well as others by Balanchine, Joffrey, Stevenson, de Mille, Petipa, Pilobolus, Sonia Dawkins, Gerald Arpino, Donald McKayle, Mark Dendy, Trey McIntyre, Rena Butler, Sidra Bell and Alejandro Cerrudo. Guest performers, choreographers, scholars and teachers visit the School of Dance each semester enriching students’ experience and aiding in their preparation for the profession. Participation by dancers of diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds is encouraged.
