Through our Center for Dance Education, Tulsa Ballet also provides free education and outreach programs to our community. These important programs give almost 10,000 individuals annually the opportunity to experience the arts and see world class dance. It is our pleasure to give back to the community by providing these programs.

Any educator interested in enrolling or needing more information about our outreach programs should contact Colleen Lahti at 918-749-6030 or colleen.lahti@tulsaballet.org.

This week long project explores the creative and collaborative process with a ‘can do’ philosophy, stimulating children’s curiosity, physical awareness and musical understanding. Highlights of this program include an opening performance by artists from Tulsa Ballet Center for Dance Education and a closing performance by your students showcasing their creations.
