About Regional Dance America

"Quality dance is an important part of the rich and diverse culture available to all individuals in every community across the United States and Canada. The pre-professional dance company is at the core; reaching communities and populations that may not be served by larger, professional companies.  As members of Regional Dance America, these companies claim national and international recognition for the standards to which they are held. Young dancers regardless of geographic boundaries have access to quality dance performance, training opportunities and over $250,000 in scholarships annually; choreographers thrive in enriching settings with all resources necessary to grow and develop into regional, national and international stature. Regional Dance America is the national identity for member companies, unifying the five regional associations."
