Welcome to Richmond Ballet Outreach ProgrammingCat Studdard


Welcome to Richmond Ballet Outreach! Our department is full of anticipation as final preparations fall into place for our year-long Minds In Motion schools in Richmond and Charlottesville to head to the theatre for Culminating Performances. Teaching Artists and Musicians are full of stories about students who have emerged as strong performers and classes that have joined together as strong teams. The final phases of rehearsal always bring forth a sense of being a part of something greater than any individual. Upwards of 450 students in three different casts will share their year’s journey as they present Jamestown: A New World In Motion. Please make plans to join us for this inspiring celebration of our students and their incredible efforts.
