About

Richmond Ballet brings innovation to the stage with a range of performance opportunities including intriguing original repertory works, master classes, and lecture demonstrations. Under the visionary artistic direction of founder Stoner Winslett, the company is dedicated to its mission of “awakening and uplifting the human spirit.”

Richmond Ballet is excited to announce the addition of a second company, Richmond Ballet II (RB II), which premiered in September 2012. RB II is an elite group of ten professional dancers led by former Richmond Ballet professional dancer, Igor Antonov. The small size of the group and versatility of repertory will allow RB II to perform in communities that might not otherwise experience ballet. The repertory selections and production requirements are designed to adjust to each individual venue while offering an affordable option to presenters. The versatility and affordability of RB II make it an ideal group for tour stops throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Performances

Now in its 31th professional season, Richmond Ballet continues to win acclaim for its inviting, broad repertory that combines classical and contemporary ballets with an impressive collection of over 50 original works. Now, with the addition of Richmond Ballet II, The State Ballet of Virginia is available to tour to all communities throughout Virginia. Richmond Ballet is excited to work with presenters throughout the Commonwealth to design programs that meet individual community needs.

Educational Programs

Educational Programs include in-school performances and youth performances for public and independent schools, as well as, master classes, open rehearsals, and workshops for advanced dance students. Richmond Ballet also offers multi-day residencies.
