Annual Giving


Meaningful contributions come in many sizes and amounts.  The best contributions are those that come because of inspiration and confidence.  RDT wants to perpetuate its story through you, our audience, the students and teachers we serve from urban and rural communities throughout the state and nation.  Please share your RDT experience and a gift with a short message as we continue defining the legacy of RDT.

Executive Summary - Artistic
RDT designs entertaining and educational dance performances, community activity and school residencies (K-12, colleges and universities) in order to provoke socially relevant dialogue, celebrate a sense of place, history, stories, concepts, music and visual arts that provide a rich legacy of content to be explored and enjoyed by future generations.  RDT has a long-term commitment to dance preservation and unique place-based arts and education programs that uses the language of dance to empower youth and mobilize individuals to make a life long commitment to fitness and health.

Planning for the Future – Administrative
Operating with an effective and efficient management team, it is with great pride that we can say RDT was a catalyst envisioning the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center which provides dancers and guest artists with space to develop as choreographers and teachers as well as performers. RDT’s volunteer Board reflects the community we serve: men and women with skills and expertise in economic development; educational systems, finance and marketing, former dancers, staff and patrons. All are dance enthusiasts connected to the community in a variety of ways and with a common goal to advance the mission of RDT for creation, performance, preservation and appreciation of modern dance. 

Your gift in any amount is vital to sustain the organization by preserving RDT’s unique history with the art form past and present.
