We're releasing what we believe is a great story today.

Actually, we think we have great coverage every day. It's really amazing how many compelling stories and news updates we have within The Oklahoman packaged and organized every single day.

While that part is amazing, there are still some stories that simply jump off the screen as we edit them. That's what we have this week:  a great story about great people within our community.  

'Saving the Last Dance' is a four-part series from reporter Juliana Keeping that launches in The Oklahoman today. Subsequent chapters will be released in the following days. The ending to the story -- Chapter 4 -- will be released on Wednesday.  

I've had the opportunity to read all the chapters and watch all the videos. It's definitely worth your time. And more importantly, it's well worth the price of the subscription to The Oklahoman

This series will only be available to subscribers -- at least for a couple weeks. Subscribers can read the stories in The Oklahoman's printed editions each day, but they can also see the videos and the special designs on Oklahoman.com -- and only subscribers can view that site.

Here's a snippet from our lead-in:

For almost two decades, renowned dancer Shannon Primeau has been transforming the lives of young people at her Oklahoma City dance studio, where the highlight of the year is the annual spring recital.

More than 400 dancers will practice nine months leading up to the big performance. But this year, the recital, the studio and even Primeau’s legacy are at risk.

Can a community rally around her? Can the show go on?

That's just another benefit to being a subscriber. You can read what will certainly be award-winning story-telling before everyone else. Sure, everyone else will see breaking news and trending updates next week (that stuff is good, too), but only The Oklahoman's subscribers will read this long-form story. 

Eventually, we'll release the entire package on NewsOK and allow users to download an e-book and listen to a podcast of Juliana telling the story in audio. 

But this week is for our subscribers. Read the chapters in the paper. Look at them again online with our special presentations. Watch the videos. 

You can connect your print subscription to The Oklahoman's digital products by logging in and clicking on 'Activate Account.'

Enjoy another benefit as a subscriber to Oklahoman.com.
