We provide exceptional, authentic classical ballet and contemporary dance training.

Since 1950, the Virginia Ballet Company has been instilling students with the life skills of self-discipline and self-confidence through rigorous training and performance opportunities. We focus on continuing the rich tradition of classical choreography by instructing our dancers on the history of dance, its pioneers, and its methods of instruction.


The Nutcracker

DECEMBER 27-29, 2019   |   2PM & 7PM

Virginia Ballet Company presents the classic holiday tradition of The Nutcracker, now in our 70th year! Relive, or see for the first time, the magic of the Nutcracker come to life. Journey through the icy forest as beautiful snowflakes whirl about and then join Clara when visions of sugar plums delightfully entertain in the Kingdom of Sweets.
