Oklahoma International Dance Festival Set For July

Oklahoma International Dance Festival returns for its second in-person dance intensive since its inception in 2020. The Festival, which will run from July 17 to 31 at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, OK, was formed to educate, enrich, and entertain through the highest quality of dance.

Austin Hartel, founder/director, states: "My desire to create a festival to bring in teachers from all over the world came about because the location of a dancer should not limit the access to greatness.......We are excited to provide a safe environment with a unique opportunity here in the great state of Oklahoma."

Teaching Faculty: Chelsea Ainsworth, Sonia Dawkins, Ada Gonzalez, Vincent Gros, Richard Move, Sherone Price, Khalid Abdul N'Faly Saleem, Margo Sappington, Jessica Smith
