Dance is an art form in which we find our voice, strength and passion. Through our program we strive to create a balance of structure and creativity by building technical dancers with creative minds, bodies and spirits.

At the Village Dance Studio (VDS) we believe that every child should have the opportunity to grow and develop in ways the arts uniquely provide. Our program educates, challenges and inspires in a personal, non-competitive atmosphere of learning and fun. For more than a decade, thousands of young Richmonders have come through our doors. The benefits to them are obvious and lifelong.

"In addition to teaching me the technique I needed to dance throughout college, Village Dance provided a support system, creative outlet and invaluable stress relief that I couldn't get anywhere else. Dancing has enriched all other areas of my life and I wouldn't be the same without it!" - Anna Starnes VDS student 15 years
