Leadership

From its earliest days as a small group of advisors, the Regional Dance America National Board has expanded over time to include an elected president, coordinator, and representative from each Region, creating a true leadership alliance across the country. The National Board advises RDA’s policy and direction, fostering bonds between regional pre-professional dance companies and encouraging development of member companies. Comprised of directors from across the country, the National Board offers enrichment, encouragement, and guidance to the RDA Regions and their members companies.
