In early 2018, the new facility for the Virginia Treatment Center for Children (VTCC) will open its doors on the Brook Road Campus of Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU (CHoR). The VTCC is the mental health arm of CHoR, and the new 120,000 square foot state of the art facility will provide psychiatric and mental health services through inpatient and outpatient services to children and their families from all over Virginia. The building features a sweeping two story waiting and welcome center, with a Children’s Activity Center steps away from the Children’s Mental Health Center and inviting outside courtyard. Children coming to VTCC will be welcomed with murals, artwork and special play areas throughout the building. The proceeds from the 2018 Dancing with the Richmond Stars will be used to fund the Children’s Activity Center, a special waiting area with colorful seating, interactive gel block flooring and activities area.

The 8th Annual Dancing with the Richmond Stars, ballroom dance competition modeled after the television hit, Dancing with the Stars, is presented by the MCVH Auxiliary of the VCU Health System and Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Competition will be hot and commentary even hotter with a panel of local celebrity judges evaluating the dancers. The judges will select a winning pair, but the biggest winner will be Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU (CHoR), the beneficiary of this exciting and very entertaining event.

Our stars are learning and practicing their dances under the able direction of Eleanor Robertson at Rigby’s Jig Dance Studio, who is providing dance instruction, training space and professional dance partners.

We invite you to attend this one-time performance to cheer on your favorite dancers while supporting central Virginia’s children’s healthcare treasure.
