Originally founded in 1993 as the Yukon Civic Ballet, The Central Oklahoma Ballet Company had humble beginnings—starting with only a few dancers, a shoestring budget and performances confined to a small venue. Since then, audiences, contributions, and sponsorships have grown, enabling the ballet company to move to a larger venue—the Yukon Fine Arts Auditorium—and bring in professional dancers for principal roles. We’ve also expanded our costume inventory and enhanced our sets and special effects. As support for the production has grown, the board has expanded its vision of bringing the beauty of dance to neighboring communities, and as a result, became the Central Oklahoma Ballet.
