Prairie Dance Theatre believes that the dance instruction provided
gives our students the gifts of self-confidence and community that all
children deserve. We are dedicated to engaging children in the arts and
inspiring them toward excellence through our dance programs, offered free
of charge. It is our desire to fill each classroom with dance
professionals and live musicians to inspire the students of Oklahoma
City. We believe this incredible opportunity should be assessable to
all students. It is our hope that you’ll join us in our
efforts to spread the gift of dance to as many students as we can!
