School Policies


We are located in the heart of downtown Richmond at 407 East Canal Street. Free parking is available in the Richmond Ballet lot directly next to the Ballet building at all times. After 4pm, you may park in the blue spots in the Canal Street lot (the lot across from the Ballet building) at no charge. Street parking is also available.

I was excited to arrive at camp every morning because I couldn’t wait to find out what fun thing we’d be doing each day.
