The Richmond Academy of Dance - Celebrating 32 Years of Excellence

A photo from the Richmond Academy of Dance's Contemporary program.


The Academy’s Contemporary Program is taught by the city’s most experienced professionals. A dance style that draws from other philosophies of movement that are outside the realm of classical dance technique, contemporary searches for ease of movement, using the body’s natural lines and energy, and allows a greater range and fluidity of movement than conventional dance techniques. Contemporary dance is characterized by its versatility and allows experienced dancers to push new boundaries of body movement. We offer Contemporary as part of our Professional and Half-Day Divisions for the experienced and advanced dancer.
