Regional Dance America

Regional Dance America was founded in 1988 to promote the artistic development of dance companies and to continue the important work that was started in 1956 by the National Association for Regional Ballet. NARB was instrumental in the decentralization of dance in the United States.


Every year across the country member companies attend a regional festival to share four days of classes, lectures, seminars and social events. Performances showcasing the member companies demonstrate the growth they have achieved throughout the year. The interchange among dancers, directors, choreographers and world-class teachers over the intensive festival period is one the greatest benefits of Regional Dance America.

Central Indiana Dance Ensemble has been a member company since 2001. It has been an honor company since 2006.
