      Dance the night away to music from the Joe Muscolino Band.

    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!

    How It works

    1. VIP Cocktail party

      Toast to RDT with a signature cocktail, wine or beer (or any beverage of your choice). Wander around the studios to watch choreographers work. View auction items and enter initial bids.

    2. Final Touches

      Place your final bids on auction items. Wander to studios to see choreographers put final touches on pieces.

    3. Performance

      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.

    4. Dancing & Dessert

      Everyone is invited on stage for dancing with The Joe Muscolino Band and dessert. Voting will continue.

      The 2019 COMMISSION will be awarded at 10:00 pm.
