  • I wanted to let you know the RDT concert truly was amazing last night. Sense of Place is a really an awesome varied concert. I loved it all!
    After "Bolero," the audience jumped to its feet & began clapping madly. Everyone really was jazzed up about the performance.

...I can't gush enough about RDT. Their work with our students and teachers was phenomenal, and their performance was so fun and engaging! What a beautiful way to share dance with our students! So many teachers have already commented on how powerful and meaningful the lesson demonstrations were for them.
