Tulsa Youth Ballet students are constantly living out the OPA mission statement:
Company students spend their season performing and educating our communities and organizations to the beauty and wonder of the arts, through programs such as T.U.L.S.A. (Talented and Unlimited Leaders Spreading the Arts), H.A.P.P.Y. (Hands-on Arts Performance Programs for the Youth) and Capture the Spirit (Holiday program). In April, they have a large caliber performance. Their season ends with Summer’s Here, a celebration performing new and innovative works which are created for the enjoyment of all.
