From Our Website

To educate children through character building activities that encourage a love of the arts and inspire them to succeed. We are an organization devoted to enriching the lives of youth through the power of the arts. Using the arts as a catalyst for change, we help guide our students as they seek to impact their world. Our programs are designed to encourage every child's creativity in a positive environment. Our hope is that each child will walk away with a stronger sense of self-worth, more confidence and a wildly creative spirit.


Do you have a young dancer who LOVES dance and wants MORE? We will be assessing students this summer for our NEW Petite Protg and Protg classes. These advanced, invitation only classes, will give dancers extra time in class, further challenge them and serve as a stepping stone to the Relev Dance Company! Dance competitions can be a wonderful experience for dancers! Having the opportunity to compete in something you love can be very rewarding. At ArtWorks Academy, development of proper technique is the foundation of our dance program.


The Musical Theatre Company was formed as a response to students seeking out other performance opportunities. This company is currently for students in 3rd-12th grade. For those students who really want to be challenged and further their musical theatre training, this company is for them. The company members will get the opportunity to perform at various festivals and functions throughout the year. They will be held to the highest standard and expected to give 100%. We have a lot of talented students at ArtWorks Academy and we cannot wait to see what this company is going to accomplish.


Production Company was founded in 2007 when we opened our doors. This company is for 3rd-12th grade students. Members produce a musical each semester. We have seen so many of our students grow and develop as members of this company. We have had students who can barely be heard at their first audition, playing leads a year or two later. Junior Production Company is $68 per month and Senior Production Company is $99 per month, both have a $100 Production Fee per semester to help cover the costs of the costumes, theatre rental, royalties, etc. Students audition for role assignment only.


ArtWorks Academy of Performing Arts has been serving the community since 2007. Students come from all over the metro and surrounding towns to receive a multifaceted education in the arts. To better serve our current students and introduce the arts to new students, we have expanded! In 2018 ArtWorks Academy announced the addition of new satellite locations. In 2019 we added 2,500 square feet to our Main Campus, including the addition of The Loft Theatre, our black box performance space. We are an Epic Vendor.


Virtual classes will be conducted through Zoom with a live instructor and is available for any students to enroll in, even those outside of the OKC metro area. We are an Epic Vendor. If your child attendsEpic Charter School, please contact us to find out how we can bill them for your child's classes through your learning fund. Email us at info@artworksacademy.com for more info. Our preschool dance classes include preballet, tap and beginning acro skills! Our youngest dancers will develop rhythm and musicality through tap.


We believe the best way to learn is by doing. Every student deserves a chance to receive the same training, no matter their previous experience. It is our delight to cast every student. As our theatre program continues to grow, we will adjust our classes to accommodate all students who wish to participate. Your child will learn about all aspects of theatre. They will gain a solid technique, with an emphasis on performing. Our musical theatre students will develop their skills in the areas of singing, dancing and acting.
