Open House: Free Event

Explore the Power and Grace of Tulsa Ballet

Saturday, August 11, 9:30am-3pm

We’re opening our studio doors to our Tulsa community for a full day of exciting observation and interactive activities. If you’ve ever wondered what a day in the life of a professional dancer is like, or how pointe shoes are made, or what sets and costumes look like up close, this free event is for you!

You are welcome to stop in throughout the day and stay as little or as long as you like.

Additional exciting door prizes will be given away throughout the day, like 2 season passes to 5 Tulsa Ballet shows, tickets to the Philbrook Museum of Art, the Tulsa Botanic Garden, Tulsa Opera, Tulsa Symphony, the Arts & Humanities Council, and more!

Stay up to date on Open House announcements by liking us on Facebook and invite your friends and family through our Event Page.
