Regional Dance America presents the 59th National Choreography Intensive
to provide a one-of-a-kind experience for choreographers to explore the craft of choreography and for dancers to study in a variety of dance styles and with diverse choreographers.
The RDA National Choreography Intensive (NCI) is a multifaceted program, providing dancers, emerging choreographers, and seasoned choreographers the unparalleled opportunity to work, study, and create under the guidance of nationally recognized professionals in the fields of dance and music. The 59th NCI will take place at Sam Houston State University’s state-of-the-art Gaertner Performing Arts Center.
Tracing its roots back to 1961, the NCI has been guided by luminaries from the professional dance world. For dancers, daily master classes enrich training in many genres of dance while afternoon work with new choreographers provides depth and understanding for nightly performances. For choreographers, daily exploration of choreography concepts with NCI’s Directors of Choreography and Music followed by daily choreography sessions filled with dancers, space, and time enables choreographers to hone their craft and develop their choreographic voice.
Train with NCI’s world class faculty in a focused and inspired environment. Experience the 2020 National Choreography Intensive July 19 – 29 at Sam Houston State University!
