creating new heights in modern dance


Oklahoma Contemporary Dance Festival

Oklahoma Contemporary Dance Festival is a grant funded program, hosted by Perpetual Motion Dance, which allows dancers ages 13 & up throughout the mid west region to study with professional choreographers throughout the month of July culminating in a final performance of twelve uniquely constructed pieces including modern and aerial work.

Eight choreographers have been recognized and confirmed to present choreographic works at the Oklahoma Contemporary Dance Festival: Brandi Kelley (Irvine, California), Rebekah Wallace Garrett (Prairie Dance, OKC, OK), Amanda Jackson (University of Texas at Arlington, Big Rig Dance Collective, Fort Worth, TX), Maria Krey-Gibson (Dance Fusion, OKC, OK) Christie Bondade (Nelson) (Southern Methodist University, Richland College, Texas Woman’s University and Collin College, Richardson, TX), Kayla Jenkins (Perpetual Motion Dance, OKC, OK), Austin Nieves (Men of R.A.C.E. Dance company, OKC, OK), and Meghan Cardwell-Wilson (Collin College, McKinney, TX).

Join the staff of Perpetual Motion Dance and two OCDF choreographers for a modern technique master class followed by a 2 hour aerial dance workshop. No experience required.
