Welcome to Richmond Ballet Outreach ProgrammingCat Studdard

Thanks for checking out all that is going on with Richmond Ballet Outreach. I’m extremely proud of the wonderful dance experiences that were crafted with great care and artistry during the 2016-17 school year. Over 2,200 fourth graders from Richmond, Chesterfield, Hopewell, Charlottesville, Portsmouth and Israel jumped into the world of dance through Minds In Motion.  Students from 81 schools were engaged in a thrilling adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream as RB II brought the story to their schools or local theatres throughout the Commonwealth. Our Youth Performances enjoyed rave reviews from students as they were able to see some of the magic that brings a performance to life. In fact, over 40,000 audience members were impacted by Richmond Ballet Outreach programming during 2016-17. What a thrill to know we are reaching so many people with our mission to awaken and uplift the human spirit!

Summer is a beautiful time for us to acknowledge our impact during the previous year and to welcome you to be a part of our programming in the year to come.  Our Summer Camps are a great way for rising 5th and 6th graders to connect to dance through Minds In Motion, and they offer another exciting public art experience through the culminating performances. Check out our latest news to get more details about camps and performances.  Once you step into the world of dance, you’ll definitely be moved!
