Frequent Flyer Miles

Use your frequent flyer miles to purchase a plane ticket for a guest dancer or teacher! It takes about 50,000 miles to fly a guest artist to and from Bismarck. Unfortunately, on many airlines we can't combine miles. However, some airlines allow you to use leftover miles to purchase other items. If you don't have enough miles to donate a plane ticket, why not get a gift card, rent a car, or buy office supplies for NPD?

Redeem your AAdvantage miles at AMERICAN AIRLINES, and you can RENT A CAR for a visiting artist.


Use your DELTA SKYMILES to BUY A GIFT CARD at and more.


We often need housing for out-of-town artists, ranging from a guest room for a few days to a separate apartment for up to four weeks. Do you know someone with an empty vacation home, "mother-in-law" apartment, or rental unit?


Once we fly our artists here, they need transportation. If you have an extra vehicle and would consider letting us use it for a short period of time (usually 1-3 weeks), please Contact Us.
