The RDA Outstanding Soloist program is an educational opportunity for dancers to receive personalized, constructive feedback on a solo performance from RDA’s world-class adjudicators.
The program seeks to cultivate excellence and nurture the artists of tomorrow! Additionally, selected Outstanding Soloists in each Region will gain one-of-a-kind exposure by performing their solo at the Regional festival.
Over 200 dancers have worked with RDA’s professional Adjudicators through the Outstanding Soloist Program. Each dancer receives one-on-one coaching and feedback during their Company’s Adjudication. Selected dancers received the opportunity to perform their solos at their RDA Regional Festivals. This national program has RDA’s signature intimate approach. One-on-one coaching can have a transformative effect on dancers’ futures!
Every RDA Member Company has the opportunity to submit up to five solos for consideration. Dancers gain experience, constructive feedback from esteemed Adjudicators, and the opportunity to singularly represent your company on a national platform!
Thanks to Eurotard Dancewear for its generous sponsorship of the 2019 and 2020 RDA Outstanding Soloist Programs!
