National Choreography Intensive

Regional Dance America's 59th annual, first ever virtual, National Choreography Intensive has been a tremendous success! 🌟

For the past three weekends, NCI'20 participants from all corners of the US have participated in dance masterclasses and choreography workshops, as well as worked with new choreographers each day. Additional instruction time in dance filming and video editing has empowered the participants with the knowledge and skills to succeed in today's evolving dance landscape. Dancers have built dance showreels, and choreographers have created new works on film. 🎬

We are so excited for the NCI'20 Virtual Showcase Performance tomorrow, which will highlight all of the virtual choreography films that have been created throughout the NCI'20! Looking forward to celebrating everyone’s hard work tomorrow! It’s show[reel] time! #seeyouonzoom #RDANCI20

One of our favorite parts of RDA’s Virtual NCI is when choreographers are in class on one screen and dancers are in class on another screen. It is incredible to watch these artists work, learn, create, and grow! When the two groups come together for seven simultaneous choreography rehearsals, the inspiration is endless! We are inspired watching you every day 🔥
