RDT's Annual Choreographer Competition: Fundraiser & Gala
February 9, 2019// Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center
The clock is ticking, the dancers are sweating, the choreographers are frantically creating and the audience is partying. It must be RDT's annual REGALIA, a fundraiser that asks the audience to award a commission. The performance culminates with a lively shindig and dancing on stage to big band music by the Joe Muscolino Band. Not to be missed!
Enter the theatre and watch all four pieces be performed. After seeing all four pieces, you will have a chance to vote with your wallet to determine which choreographer will be assigned a commission for next year. Watch each piece and vote (with your number) for your favorite. In order to vote during this time you will have to have a registered number.
There are 2 ways to vote for your favorite choreographer:
THE CHOREOGRAPHER WHO RAISES THE MOST MONEY WILL BE AWARDED A COMMISSION FOR RDT NEXT SEASON.
