There are currently ninety-two companies and over two thousand dancers who belong to Regional Dance America. The national organization has had an enormous impact on dance and its decentralization in this country. Regional companies have grown in stature and quality nationwide. Over three hundred companies have been members of RDA. Regional companies exist in nearly every corner of the United States.
Our member companies have some of the most respected pre-professional training programs in the country.
