OU Together: COVID-19 Resources

The University of Oklahoma is planning for a resumption of in-person classes at regular capacity university-wide for the fall 2021 semester.

OU TOGETHER serves as a centralized, evolving resource for our Norman campus operations. Please visit frequently for the latest information. Find information about COVID-19 resources and masking protocols here.

Five Moons Dance Festival


Five Moons Dance Festival runs Aug. 27-29, 2021. This inaugural festival celebrates the legacies of Maria Tallchief (Osage), Marjorie Tallchief (Osage), Rosella Hightower (Choctaw), Moscelyne Larkin (Shawnee-Peoria), and Yvonne Chouteau (Shawnee). These five American Indian ballerinas were born or raised in Oklahoma, and their courage, passion, and perseverance propelled them to perform on the world's greatest stages and leave a lasting mark on the dance world.

The Five Moons Dance Festival will include an opening reception, a symposium featuring a series of panel discussions and educational events honoring the Five Moons' legacy, and will culminate in a performance at 3:00 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 29 in Elsie C. Brackett Theatre on the University of Oklahoma's Norman campus. The performance will feature artists from the OU School of Dance, Oklahoma City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, the American Indian community, and an original work by guest choreographer Stefanie Batten Bland.

You don’t want to miss this incredible weekend honoring five inspirational women!
Tickets are required for all events.
