The School


Welcome to The School of Richmond Ballet.


As the official school of Richmond Ballet, The State Ballet of Virginia, we offer superior training for young people who aspire to have a professional ballet career as well as those students who wish simply to enrich their lives through dance. Together, with our world-class faculty, we work to ensure that every student has a valuable and positive experience with dance, from the tiniest dancer to the elite artists that graduate from our advanced programs.

We are so excited to have our students back in the studio!

Following local government guidelines as well as recommendations from our medical task force, we have established specific building entry and class protocols which all students must follow to keep our community safe. In addition to our in-studio classes, many School of Richmond Ballet classes will be live streamed.

We still have places in our Children’s Division ( ages 4-7) and our Lower Division ( ages 8-12).  We are offering both Virtual and In-Person classes, following our safety protocols, in Ballet, Character Dance, and Theatre Dance. Please join us at School of Richmond Ballet!
