Children’s Division Fall Classes

September 5, 2019 – May 31, 2020

 

Invitation to the Dance

SRB Invitation to the Dance for students three and four years of age will introduce your child to ballet through movement and music. Your child’s natural love of dancing will be enhanced through body awareness, listening skills, and rhythm in a structured yet imaginative environment.

One child ticket and one companion adult ticket to the Richmond Ballet production of The Nutcracker at Dominion Energy Center are included with Invitation to the Dance III tuition. This ballet classic will be studied as part of class, and the students will watch a company rehearsal and learn about other aspects of the production.
