Dogtown Dance Theatre is a home for performing artists to create and present their work while developing the skills needed to thrive. We seek to enliven our local community by encouraging expansive creative expression and education across diverse populations.




Dogtown acts as a multi-faceted support system for the artists who call the theatre “home.” Through our in-house programs and our beautifully renovated historic space, Dogtown strives to facilitate the growth and progress of artists in our community.



At Dogtown Dance Theatre, we facilitate the growth of dance professionals. Our programs help artists cultivate the professional and artistic skills needed to thrive in our community.


Dogtown Dance Theatre supports a diverse network of artists. We seek to encourage diversity in the arts while fostering the Richmond community’s appreciation for art and expression in all of its forms.

Inclusivity, Diversity, Equity & Access (IDEA)

Dogtown Dance Theatre is committed to the principles of inclusion, diversity, equity and access (IDEA) in the dance profession, the nonprofit sector and throughout all of society. Dogtown invites courageous conversations. We strive to create a community where each individual is valued, respected, and included. Dogtown is involved in numerous projects and partnerships related to IDEA.
