Minds In Motion Team XXL

Team XXL has been designated as the featured performance group to represent the Minds In Motion program. As Minds In Motion has grown, requests for performances throughout the community have increased substantially, and the members of Team XXL have become superb ambassadors for the program. Richmond Ballet’s Minds In Motion Team XXL is a group of youthful, diverse, high-energy dancers that combine pedestrian movement and rhythmic patterning into exciting and intricate choreography. This group of 36 5th – 8th grade advanced Minds In Motion students participate in after-school scholarship class once a week. This program has enabled a number of students to transition to classes at The School of Richmond Ballet. To book a Team XXL performance, click here for the flyer:  Team XXL Booking Flyer 2014
