Recognized by professional dancers and choreographers as “a place where things are happening,” Virginia Commonwealth University’s Department of Dance and Choreography offers a vibrant and stimulating atmosphere where students prepare for careers in dance.

The presenting program of VCU Dance is committed to building and engaging dance audiences in the University and Richmond communities while providing opportunities for artists to present and create work. The presentation of Ananya Dance Theater is made possible in part by a grant from the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation and by grants from the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation and the Virginia Commission for the Arts.
