 EMPOWERING ARTISTS

Your donation empowers artists and creates a healthier, more sustainable future for the arts. By holistically supporting and valuing artists, you uplift community and create a positive future for the next generation of young dancers.

Our first priority is always paying the dancers, choreographers, collaborators, and designers that bring art to life. Read our 2022/23 Annual Report to see how these values support our education programs, outreach, and community impact.

Dancer Paychecks

The heart of RDC’s mission. Over two-thirds of RDC’s annual budget goes directly to artist paychecks, with about 45% going directly to dancers.

Support ample compensation for professional dancers and help challenge the narrative of the “starving artist”.

Mainstage Performances

RDC professionally produces two mainstage performances per season - a repertory show in the Fall and an evening-length premiere in the Spring.

 

Support theater and production budgets that bring our artists' work to life.
