Student Groups

Enhance your Virginia trip by including the Virginia Arts Festival. We have student opportunities galore!

Each year, Virginia Arts Festival brings dozens of student-friendly performances to Coastal Virginia - from Virginia Beach and Norfolk to Colonial Williamsburg. Genres span from American Songbook to Classical to Dance and Jazz. Past performers include Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, Yo Yo Ma, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Kristin Chenoweth, and Renee Fleming. 

 Student tickets for many performances start at $10 and include on site parking for buses, meet and greets, and pre-performance opportunities. 

  • Customized pre-performance opportunities for choirs, bands, ensembles and dance groups
  • Discussions with artists, directors, and producers
  • Masterclasses and workshops
  • Behind the scenes immersive learning experiences

World-class dance companies are a part of every year of the Festival. Past performances include Dance Theatre of Harlem, American Ballet Theater, Birmingham Royal Ballet, and Alvin Ailey. We ask every company to provide educational opportunities to local and traveling student groups through workshops, trainings, and master classes, and we offer pre- and post-performance opportunities for students.
