Welcome to Richmond Ballet Outreach Programming
Richmond Ballet’s Outreach programming is in high gear as we move into the second part of a wonderful season. I hope you will find a way to connect to the incredible art of dance during 2017! Join us for the Community Dance Connection on January 30th at Virginia Commonwealth University to get an inside experience of the professional company’s performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Also in connection with the upcoming performance, school groups are invited to attend an open dress rehearsal of Shakespeare’s lively comedy in February; please check out our announcement below for details and ticket information.
Minds In Motion classes are stomping, twisting and reaching as they rehearse choreography in preparation for their culminating performances. Be sure to save the date for this incredible public art experience–Return to the River–in Richmond at the Carpenter Theatre at Dominion Arts Center on April 26, 27 and 28 and in Charlottesville at the Martin Luther King Performing Arts Center on June 1 and 2. Our Minds In Motion Israel Residency will take place January 15-27. 325 students from a Jewish School and an Arab School will work together to create an unforgettable performance! Check out highlights from last year’s residency on our MIM Israel page.
