The Oklahoma City Ballet’s annual gala broke its auction records with a Western theme.
Oklahoma City Ballet presented Ballet Ball: The New West at the Omni Hotel on April 1. Co-chaired by Kylee Claire Rainbolt and Bailey Gordon, the gala welcomed more than 500 attendees in Western-inspired evening wear. The event included cocktails, a seated dinner, dancing and a live auction, and the highlight of the evening was a special performance by the ballet’s professional dancers, featuring music by Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline and choreographed by artistic director Ryan Jolicoeur-Nye. The ball raised more than $425,000, which will fund initiatives including free community programs.
