Our Mission: Enriching Napa Valley youth and the community through dance education, performance, and artistic collaboration.
Napa Regional Dance Foundation (NRDF) formed in 2014 as a nonprofit partner with Napa Regional Dance Company, with the idea of expanding performance opportunities for young dancers in Napa County. We envision traditional partnerships, such as live musical accompaniment of dance performances, as well as creative artistic pairings with other performing arts groups.
NRDF believes in the power of dance education to positively influence the lives of young dancers. Dance training teaches countless life lessons — discipline, focus, body awareness, and the delayed gratification of working hard towards a series of goals, ever increasing in intensity. Dancers also learn to share their gifts through performance.
