For over 60 years, Regional Dance America (RDA) has nurtured and provided opportunities for dancers, directors and choreographers. RDA companies annually gather in their regions for three-day-long Festivals which inspire artistic and personal growth, creativity, and excellence. At the Festival, participants attend master classes, seminars, and college roundtables during the day, as well as perform each evening.
Join us for one, two or all three evenings of exceptional dance! Each performance has been carefully curated by RDA Adjudicator Lisa Slagle to inspire a community of excellence in dance education, choreography, and performance.
