As Beyond Borders prepares for the reopening of our doors to our arts community, we are actively working with our local health officials, the Richmond Performing Arts Alliance, and recommendations from the CDC alongside guidance from Dance/USA, and the national service organization for dance, to create the healthiest environment for you and your child when we return. Beyond Borders staff and leadership is committed to doing everything we can to keep our students safe.
