WE HAVE A COMPANY FOR YOU!

2019 marks the 43rd season of the EGD Company, founded in 1976 by Jimmie & Carol Ann Crowell.

These talented dancers learn special choreography and perform at events around the state. They also compete in local and national competitions and are star performers at our annual spring show.

Through the years, our company members have received many awards and recognitions, including college scholarships, professional roles and the opportunity to perform nationally and internationally. Several of the EGD members have opened their own dance studios, become professionals on Broadway, Las Vegas, and International Cruise Lines. Marquita Roberts, Cheryl Dooley and Lisa Barnes have held the Miss Dance of Oklahoma title. Here are our elite EGD companies…
