At NRV Academy of Dance, we are excited to be completing our first year of business! Our goal is to provide afforable dance education for people in the New River Valley. We believe everyone who wants to dance should be given the chance. When we opened this summer we had several families request financial assistance. At the time we were not in a position to provide this much needed aid, so we began raising money. This year we've been working to build a scholarship fund and we're happy to be able to provide financial assistance for our next dance season (beginning August 2018).

Our students and teachers are wonderful, and we want to help them in everyway we can. With that being said, our physical location could use some help! In order to provide the best dance education and experience for our students, our facility should have access to additional learning tools. There are several items which need to be updated including our sound system and ballet barres. There are so many aspects in providing a strong dance education which reach far beyond the movements. It would be wonderful to have tools available to help students learn things like anatomy and vocabulary words (did you know ballet terms are French?!).

Our long range goal includes moving into a new space where we can have two studio floors. This will allow us to offer more varied and specialized classes for our students and the community. Having good equipment in our current studio will ease these costs when we are ready to move.

The money we raise through this campaign will go to support our financial aid program as well as updating and procuring equipment for the studio.

We appreciate your help making affordable dance a reality in our community. For more information visit or email us at You can also visit us at 30 W. Main St., Suite A, Christiansburg, VA  24073.
