Review for OKLAHOMA PERFORMING ARTS, Broken Arrow, OK, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter has been a part of OPA for 3 years, my son for 2 years. We love everything about the program!! We especially love the community outreach, the staff, and the other kids. They keep kids so busy that they do NOT have time to get into trouble. I could not imagine our lives otherwise. The director, is phenomenal!! I have no idea how she gets it all done. They are way more than just a dance, voice, and acting company. They are a family!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The way that all the volunteers can pull off a full ballet. Costumes, sets, props, makeup, hair. And it looks very professional.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very friendly, like a family.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Have it's own building. With it's own building I think they could reach out to more kids. People are a little hesitant to take their kids to a dance studio in a church. WoW, it would be amazing to see.

Ways to make it better...

She had enough money to hire a full or part time assistant. Ms. Laura the director, choreographs most of the dances, designs costumes, picks music, organizes music, contacts all the parents, teaches 6 days a week, writes grants, does taxes, and more.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The building.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
