OCU’s Ann Lacy School of American Dance and Entertainment and the American Spirit Dance Company were founded by recently retired Dance Chair Jo Rowan and Dean John Bedford. The name American Spirit Dance Company was retired in honor of Rowan, but the Star Dance Company will continue OCU’s tradition of exciting dance productions.

OCU was the first dance program in America to offer degrees specializing in entertainment dance forms of tap, jazz and musical theater dance. Dancers from across the country come to OCU every year to hone their craft and go on to incredibly successful careers in show business. Alumni can be found performing, managing, choreographing and teaching all over the world. Look for them in Broadway shows, the Rockettes, television, film, cruise ships and concerts with musical artists. OCU provides dance for the world of entertainment. Don’t miss Holiday Spectacular!

Dancers in the Star Dance Company hail from the Ann Lacy School of American Dance and Entertainment, the nation’s premiere musical theatre dance program that was ranked as the #1 BFA Dance Program in the nation by OnStage. This destination collegiate program has alumni credits in over 86 Broadway musicals and has produced 49 Radio City Rockettes and counting, making it no wonder that PlayBill ranked OCU among the Top 10 Most Represented Colleges on Broadway.
