You can SPONSOR education

and make an IMPACT


NRD provides dance programming to the school districts of Riverside County (from elementary to high school) with an emphasis on Social and Emotional Learning. We focus on the following...

+ Self-awareness
+ Empathy for others
+ Social Skills
+ Making responsible decisions
+ Team Work
+ Understanding and managing emotions
+ Decision Making
+ Establishing/ maintaining positive relationships

+ Emotional + Artistic Expression
+ Locomotive Skills

NRD believes in equitable access and uses these student scholarships to provide a chance for these children to thrive and discover themselves in a structured and positive environment. 


NRD has been providing assistance to many communities so that the art of dance is accessible, equitable, and attainable. Their work has reached Los Angeles County, Chester County, the City of Philadelphia, San Diego County, New York City, and deep throughout Riverside County.


NRD will be honored to be supported by any organization that believes in its mission. With them or without them, NRD continues on the path that they’re set since 2012.


NRD established both the Palm Springs Dance Academy and the annual Palm Springs International Dance Festival as a foothold here in the community of the Coachella Valley so that dance programming is sustainable to those who are under-served here in this valley. This isn’t just about dancing. This is about providing outlets, this is about providing bridges, this is about providing new perspectives. We want to open the eyes of children to things they cannot see within their own surroundings and either bring them to “it” or “it” to them. 


We want to be here as a helping hand to guide youth in their future and we need support from our community foundations and members to help achieve this. 

Since 2020
