At the end of each school year, RCDA produces an elaborate recital production in which all students are invited to perform. Students are taught age-appropriate choreography that enables them to take the stage with confidence and enthusiasm. Stunning (yet modest!) costumes are custom-ordered for each dancer and enhance the recital experience, allowing each student to shine brightly. A fresh recital theme is presented each year and includes a grand finale that involves dancers of all ages.
Performances are held in the state-of-the-art Cultural Arts Center Theatre at Montgomery College Takoma Park/Silver Spring, with lighting designed by the very talented technical staff at the college. For details about this year’s recital, please visit our Recital page.
Cherry Blossom Parade All-Star Dance Team
Each spring, RCDA dancers join over 400 other dancers from around the U.S. on the National Cherry Blossom All-Star Dance Team. The enormous ensemble learns an upbeat dance which is performed along Constitution Avenue as part of the Annual Cherry Blossom Festival Parade.
Romanian Food Festival
RCDA dancers preview recital pieces each year at the spring Romanian Food Festival in Potomac, Maryland. Dancers love the festive atmosphere and outdoor stage!
Mother Seton Parish Communion Breakfast
Miss Christina was commissioned by Mother Seton Parish to choreograph a piece to Ave Maria, which was performed at the Parish’s annual communion breakfast. RCDA dancers have also previewed recital pieces at this annual event. An encore performance of Ava Maria was also requested!
