Oklahoma City Ballet gets new space
June 25, 2017
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — At the 2016 Summer Intensive, one of Oklahoma City Ballet's restrooms stopped working. More than 100 students had to be bused to different restaurants to use their facilities.
"At that time, the board and the staff realized that a capital campaign was on our horizon," said Sally Nichols Starling. "We knew it was in our future."
The 8,400-square-foot building housing the old office and studios, 7421 N. Classen Blvd., was built in 1977. At the annual summer intensives, the students ate lunch in the parking lot because there wasn't enough room for everyone inside.
