All About VDS


Dance is an art form in which we find our voice, strength and passion. Through our program we strive to create a balance of structure and creativity by building technical dancers with creative minds, bodies and spirits.

At the Village Dance Studio (VDS) we believe that every child should have the opportunity to grow and develop in ways the arts uniquely provide. Our program educates, challenges and inspires in a personal, non-competitive atmosphere of learning and fun. For more than a decade, thousands of young Richmonders have come through our doors. The benefits to them are obvious and lifelong.

The Village Dance Studio (VDS) offers three programs to fit the needs of every dancer.

VDS Dance Program

The VDS Program is an eight month program for dancers ages 3-18 and classes run September – May and include a final Spring Performance. All of the classes are age appropriate and have been developed to challenge dancers both technically and creatively.

VDS Short Term Classes, Workshops & Summer Camps

VDS offers several opportunities for dancers and movers of all ages to explore the world of dance and fitness.  Classes from both the VDS Dance Program and the VDS Movement Arts Program are offered in short term sessions, workshops and camps.

The Movement Arts Program at VDS was created to take dance and movement out of the studio and bring it into the classroom.  Dance has many styles and techniques but the creative process and structure is one that simply utilizes the body as a tool for creative expression.  Our VDS team of instructors have many styles and talents to offer their students and they all work together to share the benefits of movement.  We will bring the program to you!

In addition VDS also offers birthday parties for boys and girls ages 3-10.
Princess and Superhero Parties are fun and easy at VDS!
