Richter Academy of Classical Dance offers unparalleled training in the art of classical ballet. We strive to develop not only a strong technical foundation in each of our students, but take great care to nurture and develop each students' own individual creativity, imagination, character, and integrity in order to produce true artists, with a rich inner world, capable of expressing themselves through dance and performing arts.

Our mission is to instill an appreciation and dedication to the arts in the lives of young people, by providing quality instruction in a positive and nurturing environment. 

Our students are also expected to become ambassadors for the arts and to help share the beauty of performing arts with the local community through their commitment to excellence not only in their training but in their performance quality as well.

“I believe that we learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. In each, it is the performance of a dedicated precise set of acts, physical or intellectual, from which comes shape of achievement, a sense of one's being, a satisfaction of spirit. One becomes, in some area, an athlete of God. Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.” 
― Martha Graham
