      About Regional Dance Development Initiative

      Developing Regional & National Dance Opportunities

      RDDI is a pilot project designed to maximize local and regional support for
      emerging and mid-career dance artists by catalyzing existing resources and
      redefining the relationship between artist, presenter and community. RDDI
      focuses on increasing the capacity of dance artists by strengthening
      articulation of work, its inspirations and creative processes, and by
      developing presenter relationships and new markets. The structure and
      priority foci are flexible and specifically developed for a local ecology
      through partnerships with regional dance leaders comprising an Advisory
      Committee. The first pilot project took place in the Pacific Northwest in
      Summer 2004, and was highly successful, generating new presentational
      opportunities for participating artists, and sparking interest from around
      the U.S. as a new model of supporting dance artists. The second pilot is
      scheduled for the San Francisco Bay Area, and, in its first year, will focus
      on the Bay Area's large community of traditional and folk dance artists.

      The San Francisco Bay Area structure is under development; plans include
      workshops and events to take place throughout the year, such as the Dance
      Summit which is open to the dance community; and an intensive multi-day
      Artist Lab, Presenting Roundtable, Artist/Presenter Exchange and media/dance
      writing workshop scheduled for February 2006. The Artist Lab will accept
      10-12 artists and companies through an open application process.

      An information session about RDDI is scheduled during the Dance Summit.
