Performances & Competitions

At the Richmond Academy of Ballet, performances are a very important aspect of every student’s experience.  They provide the context for all of their hard work in class and rehearsal.  


We will be holding two large performances per year - “The Nutcracker” and a Spring Gala, and we will hold additional showings in the summer.  For additional performance opportunities, please click here to read about the RAB Youth Company.



Competitions can be a great way to gain more perspective and to see dancers from other areas.  When well-prepared for and done in the right spirit, they are both exciting and rewarding. If you are interested in competing, we suggest that you look at the RAB Youth Company.  All members are elgible to request to compete, and decisions are made on a case by case basis.
