Welcome to
OBT Education and Community Engagement

Education and Community Engagement’s Mission is to:


  • SHARE meaningful, high-quality dance experiences with students, families, and communities
  • INSPIRE children and adults to use their bodies in new and different ways through dance
  • CONNECT with the community by removing physical and cultural barriers and providing greater access to dance
OBT is committed to making the art form of dance accessible. Dance provides a means to connect to ourselves, each other, and the world around us. We love our community and are invested in creating sustained, meaningful relationships by sharing dance.

Thank you to our Foundation and Government partners!
