Current Programs

Nutcracker Symphony Project 2018

The Foundation will once again rally the community to proudly enhance the Napa Regional Dance Company Nutcracker ballet performance with live orchestral music, this year featuring the Napa Valley's own Symphony Napa Valley.


NRDC Summer Intensive Master Teachers

Where do dancers go in the summer?  In search of new experiences to stretch their dance muscles and their creativity!  Access to such new experiences and to instructors with varying styles and programs are essential in the development of the advanced dancer.  NRDF sponsors master teachers from all over the country to come teach their techniques at the NRDC Summer Intensive.  The five week intensive culminates in an original performance for the Festival Napa Valley, a world-renowned arts event located right in our front yard. 


Past Programs

Festival Napa Valley 2017

With the Foundation’s support, Napa Regional Dance Company's Summer Intensive dancers took to the stage at Festival Napa Valley on July 22, 2017 as part of the Dede Wilsey Dance Series. The performance was a culminating experience for the dancers, who presented original choreography by Luis Napoles, one of the Summer Master Teachers.  

NRDC Summer Intensive and Festival Napa Valley 2016

The result of a partnership between NRDC, NRDF and Festival Napa Valley, dancers participating in this year’s NRDC Summer Intensive had the opportunity to perform for a Festival audience as part of the Festival’s Tatiana Copeland Young Artists Series.  NRDC Summer Intensive 2017 has been invited back to perform in the Festival in July!
