Everybody Dance Now!
Come join us at Richmond Ballet for a dance class that will leave you smiling and sweating. This class is perfect for beginners who have never danced before through professional dancers! All dances are pre-choreographed, so it is a fast-paced challenge, but the Teaching Artists will help you along if it’s your first time. It’s not about getting the steps perfect, it’s just about dancing. When in doubt, groove it out!
Tuesday at 7pm with Paul

These are not your typical “dance” classes! An alternative to the “perfect body” standard that permeates our society, our dance workout program cultivates a welcoming, accepting atmosphere that promotes health and well-being for all people regardless of ability or background. Rhythm & Motion emphasizes the joyful spirit and open expressiveness of dance and invites it into daily life for individuals, friends, families, and the larger community.
Rhythm & Motion (R&M) was founded in 1979 by Consuelo Faust in San Francisco and has now merged to the east coast through Richmond Ballet!
Rhythm & Motion offers fun, high energy dance-based classes for the general public. All R&M teachers are experienced dancers who draw from a common body of choreography inspired by a popular and international mix of music and dance.
Our dance workout program cultivates a welcoming, accepting atmosphere that promotes health and well-being for all people regardless of background. At R&M, “Anyone Can Dance!”
