WATCH

RDC creates two mainstage performances per season: a repertory concert in the Fall and a full-length premiere in the Spring. The rest of our season is filled with unique collaborations, outreach events, and pop up performances. See below for upcoming events, and come experience what makes RDC different.

Shift the narrative of the "starving artist" and help create systemic change in the dance industry. 67% of our annual expense budget goes directly to paying RDC's working artists.
