Minds in Motion
Minds in Motion is a year-long program that teaches fourth-grade students discipline, dedication, and self-awareness by leading them through a series of choreographic movements which must be memorized and expanded upon in each session. A pianist accompanies all the classes, adding another enriching dimension to the experience. The program was created by the Richmond Ballet in 1993 and has now been implemented at over 20 schools in the Richmond area. Each school year concludes with a performance that brings together all the Minds in Motion students on stage at the Arthur Ashe Center. For more information, visit www.richmondballet.com.
