Kathleen Sinclair Posted May 25, 2008 Report Share Posted May 25, 2008 I noticed a question about the designation of performing and/or honor company in RDA (Regional Dance America) in the Young Dancers 17-22. As I cannot post in that section, I will explain the difference here in Cross Talk. RDA has a set of criteria to work towards for each of its member companies. Each year companies are adjudicated by outside professional and can be awarded an 'honor' credit for their work (both class and performance). 'Honor' credits are awarded for excellence or work above the standard of RDA. If they receive a minimum of 3 credits within a 5 year period, that company is considered an "honor" company. The only region that does not use this system is the Pacific. Companies in this region can exceed the set standard for that year and are awarded recognition for that year only. In other words, Pacific region companies do not accumulated 'honor' credits so there are no 'honor' companies listed. Simply stated, performing companies meet RDA standards and honor companies exceed or are the strongest in their region. Quote Link to comment
