Interview with Mike Hearne at This is Oklahoma.

On this episode I chatted with Principal Dancer of the OKC Ballet, Jonathan Batista. Jonathan started his training at a social project in the City of God Slums. His talent was then spotted by his teacher which took him to a pre-professional dance division at Alice Arja Ballet School where he started his journey in Classical Ballet. Currently as a Principal Dancer with The Oklahoma City Ballet, and during his spare time he also serve as a Mentor and is wholeheartedly involved in charitable & humanitarian causes.  Follow Jonathan on instagram here online at This episode is presented  by the oklahoma hall of fame.
