...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.

"RDT performs at the level of greatness that our audiences expect. RDT is an amazing dance ensemble that can perform everything from beautiful, sensual dance works to hilarious and dramatic dance pieces."

Bill Stephen / Executive Director of the Lied Center in Lincoln, Nebraska

"I cannot recommend RDT highly enough for its excellent performances, splendid outreach, flexible approach to form true partnerships with presenting organizations and their communities. I wish we could bring the company to Lincoln every year!"

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.
