RDA-Southeast's mission is to elevate the future of dance in America – giving dancers experience and directors perspective. RDA envisions a future with increasing opportunities, exposure, and connection for pre-professional dance companies around the United States. RDA will inspire a growing community of excellence in dance education, choreography, and performance.

Each year, RDA-Southeast members gather for an annual “Festival”including three or four days of classes, performances and fun.  The interchange among dancers, directors, choreographers, and world-class teachers over the intensive festival period is one of the greatest benefits of Regional Dance America
