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

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________     Team XXL is well on their way their first performances of the school year! Currently they are rehearsing “The Legend of the Chinese Dragon”! The dancers are learning and discovering that there are many elements that go into making a Dragon. For example.. Horse head finished and ox     bird wings The head from a horse, and horns from an ox –              and the wings from a bird!   The Richmond Ballet’s costume staff has been working tirelessly to help build and create all the elements of the Dragon to help our story come to life! Want to see Team XXL make a Dragon come to life right before your eyes? Then take a look at our calendar! We have a ton of great performances happening soon! They’re not to be missed! Our first show is October 4th at the 2nd Street Festival at 1:30! Come check it out!
