Welcome to Regional Dance America Southwest Festival 2018,

With over 50 years of history Regional Dance America has been a strength of force in the history of our American Dance scene creating a Legacy of landmark proportions. The embodiment of the regional dance movement for decades has given young artists opportunities to soar and to feel worth and value in their pursuit of dreams to dance. Simply put To Dance!

We are proud as directors of Collin County Ballet Theatre, to be an Honor Company Member of RDA,SW and to host of our regions Festival 2018. We feel we have a wonderful faculty, excellent musicians and great classes and performances to make this festival a memorable one. The regional dance movement is an important for us and our company of dancers. We realize the truly the significance RDA has on our lives as a dance family.

The legacy is not just from the many wonderful artists that have taught at festivals, choreographed ballets for festivals, directed regional member companies, dancers that have performed at festivals but… for the young aspiring artists that will become the Legacy that will live on for many, many more decades.

On behalf of Collin County Ballet Theatre we welcome you to our home and hope you enjoy what we have to offer you and your dancers during this exciting few days of Dance…

Sincerely, Kirt & Linda Hathaway

"You have to love dancing to stick to it.
It gives you nothing back, no manuscript to stow away,
no paintings to show on walls and maybe hung in museums,
no poems to be printed and sold,
nothing but that single fleeting moment when you feel alive."
-- Merce Cunningham (1919-2009)
