Festival Ballet of Virginia is a nonprofit, high quality, pre-professional dance company dedicated to inspiring excellence and infusing passion in dancers and audience members. Festival Ballet of Virginia provides the important performing experience necessary to complete our dancers' education. Membership in The Festival Ballet of Virginia is by audition held at the beginning of each dance year. In addition to their class commitment, dancers in the Festival Ballet of Virginia participate in a daily Performance Workshop class where they work on choreography, rehearse and master the techniques necessary for performing.
An important component of Festival Ballet of Virginia is an extensive educational approach, providing educational and entertaining outreach programs to our service area schools, special student performances and through lecture demonstrations designed to introduce school children to the art of dance. Through our grants program, we, along with our sponsors, are able to offer tickets to underprivileged children and families.
