Regional Dance Company of the Week: Tulsa Ballet

‚Äč

BroadwayWorld.com, the largest theatre site on the Internet, is thrilled to announce a new feature to its comprehensive regional coverage - the Featured Regional Dance Company of the Week! Much like we do with our featured Regional Theaters, each week, we will bring you a story on a regional dance company in one of our coverage cities. 

Regional Dance Company of the Week: Tulsa Ballet
This week's featured Dance Company is TULSA BALLET in Tulsa, Oklahoma! 

The story of Tulsa Ballet began in 1956. Husband and wife Roman Jasinski and Moscelyne Larkin, and musician Rosalie Talbott, founded Tulsa Ballet Theatre, blending classical dance with dramatic theatre. Internationally known dancers in The Ballet Russe tradition, Jasinski and Larkin set the tone for artistic excellence – a foundation that has been preserved and built upon for decades.
 
Today, Tulsa Ballet annually reaches more than 40,000 individuals across Oklahoma and employs a multi-cultural roster of dancers comprised of 29 highly-skilled professionals representing 14 different countries. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Marcello Angelini, Tulsa Ballet has reached new heights on the stage, while bringing unprecedented recognition to Tulsa and the State of Oklahoma by developing an artistic reputation marked by innovative works with international impact.
 
Regarded as one of the top ballet companies in North America, Tulsa Ballet consistently brings the finest works in classical and contemporary dance to the Midwest region, giving audiences a unique opportunity to view world-class ballet in the heartland of America.

Tulsa Ballet also offers ballet classes for youth and adults as part of its Tulsa Ballet SemGroup Center for Dance Education (TBCDE). To learn more about the offerings at Tulsa's Ballet School, click here
