3,000 Pre-Professional Dancers
90 Pre-Professional Companies
Each year, the regional members of RDA meet at a festival. The dancers participate in master classes, auditions for scholarships and three evenings of performances. The directors are given opportunities to connect, network and gain perspective.
Recruiters from professional companies, colleges and universities are welcome and encouraged to attend. They may observe the dancers in class and performance, meet with the directors, participate in college roundtable discussions, hand out information on their various programs and take advantage of the various auditions held at each festival to award contracts and scholarships, early admissions and letters of encouragement to apply.
