Beauty for Ashes Contemporary School of Dance and Riddick Dance (formally known as Beauty for Ashes Dance & Theater, Inc.) were founded in 2009 by artistic director, David F. Riddick. As a broad dance repertory company based in the City of Hampton, Virginia, Riddick Dance aims to enrich the range of cultural offerings of the Hampton Roads region by focusing on a wide range of performing arts, but especially expressive dance. Riddick Dance facilitates artistic collaborations, including but not limited to performances, workshops, seminars and community projects, thereby fostering grassroots involvement and increasing a general awareness of the performing arts in the Hampton Roads region. Through these efforts, new channels of creative dialog between dynamic cultural expressions including, but not limited to, dance, music, poetry, visual arts, and performance media, are established while existing avenues of creative dialog and cooperation can be broadened.
Riddick Dance holds class every Saturday at Studio A from 1:30 pm-5:30 pm.
