Dance and Arts Management
Facilities
In 2004, a $3 million grant from the Inasmuch Foundation was combined with a $3.5 million contribution from university trustee and benefactor Ann Lacy and a $750,000 contribution from the Mabee Foundation to make new facilities possible. Renovation and construction of the Edith Kinney Gaylord Center, the new home of the Ann Lacy School of American Dance and Arts Management, was completed in the fall of 2007. The new facility for dance and arts management instruction was revalued at $28 million and was declared in the dance press as possibly the finest facility for dance in higher education in the world. The Ann Lacy School of American Dance and Arts Management opened its new Edith Kinney Gaylord Center in August 2007. The new facility includes:
  • 8 Dance Studios
  • Permanent barres outside of studios for stretching
  • Locker Rooms with showers
  • Student lounges with televisions
  • Classrooms with flexible audio/visual technology
  • Atrium with natural light and indoor foliage
  • Wifi throughout the three story facility
"The Gaylord Center is the finest facility of its kind in the nation. It is only fitting that the students in Oklahoma City University's world-renowned Ann Lacy School of American Dance and Arts Management learn in such an environment.”
- Tom McDaniel, Oklahoma City University President 2001-2010
