In light of the COVID-19 public health crisis, Oklahoma Contemporary has temporarily postponed the opening of our new home, including spring Studio School classes and workshops. Read more about the planned launch of Studio School, now scheduled for summer, here.

We appreciate your understanding as we navigate this ongoing situation, and we look forward to welcoming you soon.

The third floor of Oklahoma Contemporary’s main building is dedicated to performing arts and serves as a creative hub for dance, theater, music, film and culture. A cutting-edge dance studio supports kinesthetic explorations through classes, workshops and opportunities for independent inquiry.

Early registration: Members at all levels receive early access to registration.

Discounts: Members at all levels will receive a 10 percent discount on Studio School classes and workshops for the named cardholder and teens in their household. If you are not a current member, join today.

Supplies: Oklahoma Contemporary provides durable artist equipment for student use during each session. Students are responsible for purchasing their own supplies for courses—a syllabus and material list is emailed upon registration. Some items, including clay and ceramic tools, are available for purchase on the first day of class.

Teen registration in adult courses: In addition to offering classes and workshops for teens, Studio School invites high school juniors and seniors to register for select adult courses. If you wish to register your teen in an adult class or workshop, please submit an application here.

For your reference, listed below are now-cancelled spring session classes. Stay tuned for the announcement of new summer courses!

Soulful Awareness is a call to action. It is an opportunity to awaken to a more ancient yet timely part of our humanity through breathing technology, mindful awareness, focused movement and soul-infused group interactions. The goal of Soulful Awareness is to practically create change within the self to positively affect the larger community. Students will familiarize themselves with the mind-body connection, resonate frequency law and the breath as chi/energy/Prana. Projects and assignments will include small-group movement experiments and short writing assignments. Students will critique the differences in mindless, disconnected social interactions and more soulfully aware interactions between people.
