About Prairie Dance Theatre

Prairie Dance Theatre is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a mission to promote a high standard of dance and movement through the education of children and the public. Our vision is to develop and implement programs rooted in dance for under-served children, to nurture in them essential traits for life achievement.

Prairie Dance Theatre has been teaching children to dance for almost 40 years! We are dedicated to engaging children in the arts and inspiring them toward excellence through dance.

Prairie Dance Theatre believes that dance instruction gives our students the gifts of self confidence and community that all children deserve. It is our dream to fill each classroom with dance professionals and live musicians to inspire the students of Oklahoma City. We believe this incredible opportunity should be accessible to all students in the city. We hope you’ll join us in our efforts to spread the gift of dance to as many students as possible!

PDT is an Allied Arts member agency that is fully funded by grants and community donations, and its operations are run by the Artistic Director and a working, volunteer Board of Trustees.
