Center for Dance Education
As I reflect on my 20th season as Artistic Director of our wonderful
organization, I ask myself what are the tools, and the order of importance of
such means, that allow this organization to drive forcefully and successfully
forward? I believe that, without doubt, the first and foremost reason for our
success is our repertory, followed closely by the ability to recruit, retain and
enable the dancers who are charged with bringing these works to the stage.
Next is the capacity to create a team atmosphere in the studio and in the
offices, a culture of excellence that puts the success of the company above
the success of any individual dancer or administrator.

Just as important is the ability of an artistic leader to model a company where the sum of its parts is superior
to the sum of the value of each individual member of the company. Add in fiscal responsibility, a good
financial plan to see the artistic goals through, a strong Board with vested interest and pride in the success of
the organization and you get... Tulsa Ballet!
When it comes to repertory, balance is the key word. The company’s repertory needs to allow for dancers’
growth: technical growth, artistic growth and extension of one’s versatility. At the same time it needs to give
our marketing department the tools to attract new audiences, retain current audiences and electrify our
supporters. In all that, we need to keep in mind our national and international status, which is achieved by
performing both the “first tier” repertory, that of the top dance makers of the world, and by creating new
works. Creating art and exporting it outside the boundaries of our state is what makes an organization
relevant to the development of the art form. Achieving all these goals in each and every season is my ultimate
goal.
If we look at the 2014/15 season, I hope you will agree with me that we are on the right path. Adam Hougland’s
Cripple and the Starfish, Luciano Cannito’s Romeo and Ashley Page’s The Grammar of Ornament , the three
creations that opened our 14/15 season, were just off the charts. Each and every one of these works was
superb in quality and entertainment value, and most importantly they worked perfectly together. Three world
renowned choreographers, all in Tulsa, creating new works for our company.
Carmina Burana offered us another opportunity to gather, under the auspices of Tulsa Ballet, the Tulsa
Symphony Orchestra, Tulsa Opera and the Tulsa Oratorio Chorus. Nicolo Fonte’s Bolero provided the perfect
opening delight for this mesmerizing evening.
Our The Nutcracker was the highest netting Holiday Season’s classic since the inception of the company in
1956, that alone is a milestone worth celebrating, while The Sleeping Beauty provided a true benchmark for the
level of the company. The Sleeping Beauty is the ultimate test for the classical strength, quality and sophistication of every ballet company. I think our dancers did a marvelous job tackling this masterpiece.
The Three Musketeers by Andre Prokovsky offered our audience the opportunity to enjoy a modern classic, a
work filled with male virtuoso dancing and accessible humor. Of course our Lorton performances closed the
season with a bit of old, a bit of new and something to rejoice: Going for Baroque, the first work I
commissioned during my 20th years in Tulsa, Age of Innocence, one of my favorite works of the past decade,
and Blue Flame, the latest creation by Ma Cong.
To underscore the success of the 2014/15 season we need to point out the
record breaking success of Icons & Idols as well as the great attendance
at the dinner celebrating 20 years of collaboration between the Ballet and
me. Can we repeat the success of such a season? Of course we can! Of
course we will! The Tulsa Ballet team is an unstoppable force in the
cultural life of our community, our state and our country. And we wouldn’t
want it any other way!!

Pointe To The Future Students
2014-2015 was another busy and exciting year for
Tulsa Ballet Center for Dance Education! Here are a
few of the highlights:
Tulsa Ballet is proud to offer Partners in Art and Hope for the Holidays to social service agencies
in the Tulsa area. With these programs our organization is able to provide the excitement of ballet to
members of the community who may not otherwise have the chance to attend a ballet performance.
Our staff and volunteers are delighted each year to see the excitement of the children and adults who
are thankful to have the opportunity to attend the ballet. Last year, Tulsa Ballet provided more
than 7,200 free tickets throughout the season to various performances.
Hope for the Holidays is a benefit
performance of the holiday classic, The
Nutcracker, staged especially for the clients
of Tulsa-area social services agencies.
Since 2000, Tulsa Ballet has provided this
program to see The Nutcracker at no cost
to thousands of individuals in the Tulsa
community. For one magical night each
December, Tulsa Ballet opens its doors to
non-traditional audiences many of whom
are physically, emotionally or cognitively
challenged. They experience their first live
performance of The Nutcracker, complete
with juice and cookies for the family and a
take home holiday gift.
We were happy to announce the promotion of
Mary Cooper, TBCDE graduate, into Tulsa Ballet II,
Tulsa Ballet’s pre-professional ensemble.
Our students had the privilege of working alongside
the main company dancers during performances
including The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker.
Performance is a large part of each dancer’s
education, whether alongside the main company or in
school performances. Our students had the opportunity to do both as well as learn from company members.
Students at TBCDE had the special opportunity to
learn and perform cutting-edge choreography by Ma
Cong, Resident Choreographer for Tulsa Ballet, as
well as learning company repertoire from retired Tulsa
Ballet Principal, Alexandra Bergman.

EDUCATION OUTREACH
Leaps Ahead and Leaps in Motion are two of Tulsa Ballet’s
major outreach programs. The programs were designed
to expand the arts education school curricula. In the 20142015 season, the programs introduced 768 students to the
physical conditioning of classical ballet and ballet training
traditions that help develop concentration skills, strengthen
visual and aural memory, accept without judgement verbal
corrections, and cooperative learning. Participating schools
in Leaps Ahead and Leaps in Motion have student
populations with 89% qualifying for the income-based,
free-lunch program.
BACKSTAGE AT THE BALLET
More than 4,500 students saw Tulsa Ballet II, Tulsa Ballet’s
pre-professional ensemble, perform Backstage at the Ballet,
a 50-minute introduction to ballet and the craft of live performance for students. Through live narration and
engaging video, students learn about a dancer’s life and all
the behind-the-scenes action that goes into staging a live
performance for the audience. 2014-2015 marked the
second year of Tulsa Ballet’s partnership with Any Given
Child, an arts initiative of the Kennedy Center. During this
year Tulsa Ballet served every 5th grade student in the Tulsa
Public School system.

ICONS & IDOLS
The 4th Annual Icons & Idols was held at the Cox Business
Center on February 7, 2015.
Icons & Idols is Tulsa Ballet’s only major fundraising event. In
the past four years, Icons & Idols has raised nearly $3 million to
fund Tulsa Ballet’s company of 28 highly-skilled professionals
representing ten different countries.
This fantastic evening consisted of cocktails, dinner, a
fabulous live auction and raffle, and a live ask, which helped
fund our education and outreach programs that serve over
5,000 students annually.
Patrons were also treated to a special, table-side
one-night-only performance by Tulsa Ballet.

INTEGRATED CAMPAIGN
For the 2014/2015 fiscal year, Tulsa Ballet was in the quiet phase of its Defining the Future Integrated
Campaign, the largest fundraising initiative in the history of the organization. The Campaign is part of a
long-range financial plan for the organization that will create opportunities for increasing earned
revenues through ticket sales, school tuition, investments, and audience development.
On May 20, 2015 Tulsa Ballet announced that the Hardesty Family Foundation had donated a gift of
13.72 acres of land to support the development of a Tulsa Ballet satellite school in Broken Arrow. The
future site of the Hardesty Center for Dance Education is located just east of the intersection of Aspen
Ave (145th) and 101st (New Orleans). The generous lead gift for this project, valued at $4.185 million, is
one of the largest gifts ever awarded by the Foundation and its founders, Roger and Donna Hardesty.
Providing a combined $16 million in lead gift commitments for Defining the Future are: The Hardesty
Family Foundation; E. Ann Graves; Mollie Williford;
Bonnie Klein; H.A. & Mary K. Chapman Charitable
Foundations; The Maurice DeVinna Charitable Trust;
The Margery Mayo Bird Foundation; The Anne and
Henry Zarrow Foundation; Kathy and Bob West;
Selser Schaefer Architects; Hannah and Joe Robson.
The J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation has awarded a
$1 million challenge grant, which is contingent on
raising the balance of the funds.
Major gift donors pledging a combined $1.7 million in
contributions include: The Albert and Hete

To kick off its 60th anniversary season in 2016, Tulsa Ballet will open
the doors to The Hardesty Center for Dance Education, to be located
in Broken Arrow, just east of the intersection of Aspen Ave (145th) and
101st (New Orleans).
The facility has been designed by Selser Schaefer Architects, and the
structural and civil engineering has been provided by KKT Architects.
The 21,000-square-foot facility will house the Ann and Jack Graves
Studios. Each studio will feature a professional basket-woven sprung
floor with Marley covering, ten-foot mirrors and a state of the art sound
system. Administrative office space, separate dressing areas for boys
and girls, and a spacious lobby to accommodate waiting parents are all
part of the floor plan. Marcello Angelini says, “Our initial design called
for a nicely equipped, relatively large, but reasonably modest, structure.
Thanks to Ann Graves’s visionary support, we will be able to offer a
much larger facility with plenty of space to accommodate future
expansion, a great improvement from our original goal. This facility will
be able to serve local area children for decades to come.” The site
will also include The Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation Performance
Studio, which will serve as a performance venue for ballet students and
educational outreach programs, as well as a functioning dance studio.
Tulsa Ballet II, the organization’s pre-professional ensemble and
performing arm of the Center for Dance Education, will also offer
performances in the Zarrow Studio.
