Friends of City Dance
Friends of City Dance is a group of citizens who believe in the power of the arts to transform young lives. Our mission is to encourage, support and promote City Dance Theatre and the City Dance Program of Richmond, Virginia’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities. We support City Dance with funds for design, production and travel costs associated with performances and competitions, scholarships for college, workshops and other training opportunities, and special equipment needs of the Dance Program. We are currently collaborating with City Dance Theatre to develop and produce The Ebo Landing Project, an ambitious set of four newly commissioned dance works with original music and choreography. Following a local premiere, the plan calls for a state-wide tour, then travel to England for a performance in Richmond’s Sister City, Richmond upon Thames.
