Richmond Urban Dance is a professional dance company reaching a wide geographical area surrounding our city. We are mission-driven with a goal to inspire, equip, and entertain, and are committed to making a difference not only in the lives of our faculty and dancers, but in the lives of our audiences as well. This Richmond dance company believes opportunities should be created, not waited upon.
In addition to weekly dance classes, we provide scholarships for our students, and are involved in community projects and giving back to our city. Last season alone we gave away over 60 scholarships, and performed at over a dozen community events, free of charge. We are overwhelmed with performance requests and requests for additional classes and services; however, we have to decline most due to our lack of resources, staff, and rehearsal space. While we thrive on the challenge this presents us – and often resort to the street as our rehearsal space – it limits us in the services we can provide. We are in need of a permanent home and paid staff.
Please take a moment to watch this short video. After doing so, we hope you will consider joining our movement.
At Richmond Urban Dance, we strive to make a positive impact by creating tasteful, highly entertaining, skillful and enticing works. While urban dance is one of the most popular among youth, there has been almost a non-existent opportunity for formal training. The leaders of Richmond Urban Dance are not only masters at this style of dance, but also in working with our city’s youth. We share a common passion, mission, and love for our city, its youth, and the arts.
We don’t just teach movement, we ARE a movement. Join us?
