Housing Program

Housing is only available for students accepted into our Senior Intensive.  Students will stay at a local hotel in a group block, with Tulsa Ballet chaperones.  The chaperones are responsible for maintaining housing program rules and guidelines while at the hotel and during off-site events and activities.  Students will be transported to and from the studios for classes and other activities and events by the chaperones, in 15-passenger vans.  The housing fees include room and board (breakfast, lunch, dinner each day, and snacks during class days).   Activities are a separate fee, based on student registration for each activity/event.
