Minds in Motion is the educational arm of the Richmond Ballet, providing accessible and fun classes to 4th through 8th graders in the Richmond region. Energetic and enthusiastic dancers, they have performed at venues such as the Paramount Theatre’s Holiday Spotlight Program, Westminster Canterbury of Richmond, the Contemporary Club of Albemarle, and the Virginia Film Festival at the Downtown Mall, to name a few.

“The goal was to allow the children of inner city schools to experience what it’s like to be an artist – to seek excellence in an art form. It’s not to make them dancers, painters or musicians. Using the finest professionals, we introduce them to an activity that demands excellence in themselves. There’s no winner or loser as in sports. It’s a motivational program for children that works – the constant striving for excellence – getting better and better.”
