OUR MISSION

NRD is on a mission to engage, inspire, and ignite the mind, body, and senses, by using dance as a language to reach multiple audiences. NRD produces professional, educational, therapeutic, and community-centric dance programming to excite the arts community, provide space for and nurturing of new, innovative, and creative programs, provide equitable access for youth to train and excel in dance, and provide opportunities for under-invited communities to experience dance at a high caliber platform. 

 

We plan to place the Coachella Valley on the map for being known as a mecca for dance and its representative dance company, Nickerson-Rossi Dance.
