OKC Ballet announces open house of new facility
Oklahoma City Ballet would like to invite the Season Subscribers and Patrons to an open house at the new location of their headquarters, the Susan E. Brackett Dance Center at 6800 Classen Boulevard on June 22, 2017. The event will last two hours, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The Ballet just recently completed the first phase of the renovations. The space, while currently still under renovations, is now being used for the Ballet’s premier Summer Intensive program that draws aspiring dancers from all over the country. This year, six countries and 34 states will be represented by nearly two hundred dancers attending the six-week training course.
The program participants come from across the United States, Canada, South Korea, Italy, England, Australia and China to train. They will be the first dancers to be taught in what is fast becoming an exceptional and advanced dance training facility.
The open house will feature tours of the building, with a dialogue of the plans for the various spaces throughout the 28,000-square foot facility. Two studios have been completed, with three studios still left to build, as well as the majority of administrative offices.
The organization recently launched a capital campaign to support the renovations and establish an operations endowment for the Ballet’s facilities. Over half of the money needed to complete the campaign has been raised.
To attend the open house, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
