Team XXL shares their gift of dance

December 21st, 2016

On a frigid afternoon in December, the dancers from Team XXL descended on The Valentine, a Richmond museum dedicated to preserving local history. Each year The Valentine (along with nine other historic sites) hosts the Court End Christmas, a holiday celebration including carriage rides, carolers, living history, live music, children’s crafts, and of course, dance.

The Team XXL dancers showcased their 30 minute performance based on the Rappahannock Tribe of Virginia. This month, the XXL performers have also shown off their moves with performances at MCV/VCU and at the Commonwealth Club.

XXL wrapped up the dancing with a holiday gathering after their rehearsal at Richmond Ballet. When we return from winter break, come see our next performance at the Children’s Hospital in February!
