University of Richmond project
The long history of the University of Richmond in the United States began with its founding as a liberal arts university in 1830. Over the ensuing years it has grown into its current 350-acre campus with over 4’000 enrolled students and encompassing five schools; School of Arts and Sciences, Robins School of Business, Jepson School of Leadership Studies, University of Richmond School of Law and School of Professional and Continuing Studies.
As a highly regarded educational institute, the University of Richmond has won a number of various accolades; these include recognition as being one of the smartest liberal arts colleges in America, ranked highly for its academic quality and student satisfaction and producing one of the highest numbers of Fulbright U.S. Scholars.
When the university’s department of Theatre and Dance required freestanding ballet barres, Dinamica Ballet was chosen as their preferred supplier. The University of Richmond selected the PINA freestanding ballet barre with wheels and opted for a double row of three metre long wooden beams.
Impressed by our equipment and service, the university also turned to us for their extension to the George M. Modlin Center for the Arts. Designed by Baskervill and constructed by TRENT Corporation, the new extension is fitted out with our ARABESQUE-DOUBLE walled mounted barres.
“We are delighted with the ballet barres from Dinamica Ballet. We received quality built, aesthetically appealing equipment and were given excellent service with professional communication. We’d certainly recommend Dinamica Ballet.”
-Anne Norman Van Gelder- Faculty, Department of Theatre and Dance, Director of Dance, Artistic Director, University Dancers.
Dinamica Ballet are very proud to have supplied the prestigious University of Richmond in the United States with their new ballet barres. We know that for the many years of history that lie ahead, there will be many more awards and recognition for this outstanding university.
