Studio Theatre - Richmond Ballet

Welcome to The Studio Theatre

At Richmond Ballet

Our Studio Theatre is located on the third floor of the Richmond Ballet building in the heart of downtown Richmond. It is the professional company’s spacious, state-of-the-art studio which can be transformed into an intimate 250-seat theatre, complete with performance lighting and sound for our Studio Series productions. Because of its casual, community feel, it’s become a favorite venue among our patrons.
