Richmond Ballet offering free performances during the Folk Festival

As the Richmond Ballet is housed just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the location for the Folk Festival, they’ve decided to make the most of the situation. Instead of shutting down for a few days (as they have done in previous years), the Richmond Ballet will offer a series of free — yes, free! — performances through the weekend.
