I am happy to answer any questions you may have about the RDA National Choreography Intensive. If you are a member of RDA and are chosen by your region for the Choreography scholarship, then you are automatically accepted into the program as an Emerging Choreographer. Emerging Choreographers work with the Directors of Choreography and Music in the morning and then are given time in the afternoon to choreograph. Usually the music and the choreographic assignment are given to you that day. So, you have to learn to work quickly! Most choreographers find this incredibly challenging. Additionally, your work is shown each evening. After the showing, all of the choreographers participate in a critique session led by the Directors of Choreography and Music. This is incredibly valuable for choreographers to receive constant guidance and feedback.
Choreographers who attend the National Choreography Intensive learn how to work quickly, how to analyze their choreography, how to work with a variety of dancers and how to proceed on their path to becoming a choreographer.
It's also important to note that even if you are not chosen as your region's representative, you may still apply to be an emerging choreographer. The application process is on our website and the deadline is May 1.
I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any additional questions!

Could you please provide the dates and location for this year's Choreography Intensive? I keep finding conflicting information online.
Also, is it possible to get a scholarship from submitting a video application, or are the scholarships only available to those who compete in the regional competitions?
Thanks for your help!

DD is in route to NCI..she's quite excited! Thought I'd post here to see if anyone else is attending or has kids who are attending?
