Important Regional Dance America Update:
Regional Dance America has as its top priority the health and well-being of its staff, faculty, and dancers. With that in mind, we have been actively monitoring a variety of sources for the latest updates on the coronavirus (COVID-19) so that we may support our Regions to make informed decisions regarding their upcoming Festival season events. The ongoing evolution of circumstances surrounding the coronavirus presents significant challenges for us and our Regions in making these decisions. After much thought and discussion, we are recommending that RDA Regions follow the protocols of their cities, counties, and states where each Festival is being held. Please continue to check with your individual Region Festival Coordinator for updates.
At this time, two RDA Regions have made the difficult decision to cancel their 2020 Festivals due to the spread of COVID-19. RDA/Southwest’s Festival, previously scheduled to take place March 26 – 28, and RDA/Southeast’s Festival, previously scheduled to take place April 30 – May 2, have been cancelled out of concern for the health and safety of all Festival participants. We will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available.
