Oklahoma International Dance Festival provides rigorous professional training for dancers, offering residencies for practicing dance artists, and presents performances with a renowned roster of local, national, and international dance-makers.

The Festival has assembled a dynamic and diverse faculty with the advanced, pre-professional, and professional dancer in mind to experience an international view with working professionals in the field, serving Oklahoma and the Central Region of the United States. 



We bring together a global community of Ballet & Contemporary Dance Artists with our stellar Faculty line-up. Through this, we encourage cross-genre exploration & collaboration, providing OIDF dancers the resources they need to become versatile, strong, and holistic dance artists.

  • Pre-Professional Program: Serving dancers 16 -18 years old

  • Professional Artists Program: Serving dancers 18+ 

  • Professional Development for Dance Educators

  • Main Stage Performances

 "I felt challenged and pushed and left every day with the feeling of giving my self to dance, which I have missed desperately. 

The teachers gave every class with the attention to detail I thought was only possible in an in-person experience. 

I am immensely grateful for the intensive and I am eagerly waiting for another opportunity to learn and dance alongside the faculty and dancers.  Thank you!"

- Isabelle Morgan, Cincinnati Ballet 2nd Company
