International Dance Day was founded in 1982 by the International Theatre Institute (ITI) Dance Committee. The event takes place every year on April 29 to celebrate the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre (1717-1810), the creator of modern ballet. The Arts Centre began participating in this event five years ago with the creation of the Grand Plié which is scheduled on, or as close to, the official day as possible.

Annual School Year Dance Recital
Each year in June, students from our dance and musical theatre programs perform in our annual school year recital held at the Gateway Theatre. These performances are the culmination of the students’ achievements for the year and are the highlight of our school year program.
In addition to the Upper Rotunda of the Richmond Cultural Centre, Gateway Theatre, South Arm Community Centre, Thompson Community Centre and the Richmond Arts Centre have teamed up to provide exhibition opportunities for local Artists. The Arts Centre curates 2D exhibitions that are loosely connected to the themes of each individual theatre production. The exhibition is displayed in the lobby of the theatre.
