OCU Returns ‘Home for the Holidays’

Home for the Holidays promo

Oklahoma City University’s American Spirit Dance Company will present its “Home for the Holidays” show Dec. 6-9 in the Kirkpatrick Fine Arts Center at N.W. 24th Street and Blackwelder Avenue.

Under the direction of Jo Rowan, the festive, high-energy dance celebration will journey to a Christmas party like no other. This year’s show features new kicklines, tap dances and more from OCU’s nationally recognized dancers and choreographers. It includes an entirely new lineup of dances with the precision and beauty that has made the dance company internationally known.

OnStage, a national media outlet covering the performing arts, ranked OCU’s Ann Lacy School of American Dance and Entertainment among the top three dance programs in the nation — ahead of Juilliard — for the second year in a row. The program has alumni credits in more than 86 Broadway musicals and has produced 49 Radio City Rockettes. PlayBill ranked Oklahoma City University among this year’s Top 10 Most Represented Colleges on Broadway.

“Home for the Holidays” has become a yearly tradition for families across the state and beyond. Attendees will have a photo opportunity with Santa’s helpers during the show’s intermission. Sweets and merchandise will also be available in the lobby.

Tickets for the performance are $29.85 and may be purchased online at okcu.edu/tickets or by calling 405-208-5227. Group pricing is available for parties of eight or more.

Tickets can also be purchased at the Edith Kinney Gaylord Center Performing Arts Ticket Office, 2501 N. Blackwelder Ave., from noon to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. No infants are permitted. Lap seating is not allowed and no booster seats will be provided. It is recommended but not required that children be ages 6 and up.
