SPARC - School of the Perfoming Arts in the Richmond Community


SPARC inspires young people, ages 5-18, to reach their full potential through quality training in the performing arts. SPARC helps young performers develop life skills and responsibility, and helps Richmond grow its future leaders. BCWH is proud to be helping SPARC create their new performing arts education center. BCWH consulted with SPARC to develop a master plan for the renovation of the facility including responses to Change of Use and code compliance as well as accessibility. Work completed to date includes the administrative office area, a teaching studio, the first phase of a 100 seat black-box theatre space, scene shop and other support spaces. Conceptual designs have been developed for the completion of the theatre, expansion in the second floor areas and site and landscaping improvements. Already SPARC is taking full advantage of having its own home as it hosts educational and performance opportunities for SPARC students and the community.
