New Dance Education Center Opens In Broken Arrow

Posted: Updated:
BROKEN ARROW, Oklahoma -

After more than a year of construction, the Hardesty Center for Dance Education is ready for students.

The new 4,000-square foot center held its grand opening on Saturday in Broken Arrow.

From pre-professionals to aspiring little ones, the Hardesty Center for Dance Education is here for everyone.

“Do you like to dance?” Marie Davies said.

Davies and her 2-year-old Alice took a tour of the new Broken Arrow facility at Saturdays grand opening. Davies hopes one day her daughter will be learning in a class like this one.

“She's not old enough yet but maybe next summer we can get her in some beginning classes,” she said.

And the center has plenty of room, boasting state of the art facilities.

From dance studios to locker rooms, even a full performance hall, the dance center has it all.

Co-Principal Andre Reyes says he's really proud of the dance education they offer.

"Really qualified teachers,” Reyes said. “If you look at their resumes, they are rather impressive."

Their impressive skills on display, with a performance from the Tulsa Ballet's second company.

It's all very nostalgic for Davies, who remembers her days -- dancing in the Nutcracker.

“I was a baker, I was a mouse, I was a soldier, so many different roles, it was all so very fun,” she said.

And whether little 2-year-old Alice wants to dance for fun or dance for life, mom says she hopes to bring her here to learn from some of the best.
