SDC WORKSHOP FOUNDATION
Stage Directors and Choreographers Workshop Foundation is the nation’s only organization dedicated to training, nurturing and supporting theatre’s directors and choreographers and advancing the crafts of stage direction and choreography. We provide programs offering opportunities, conversations and community, and recognition and advocacy to directors and choreographers at all levels of career, as well as programs to benefit a broader range of theatre artists and the general public.
Founded in 1965, Stage Directors and Choreographers Workshop Foundation exists to foster, promote and develop the creativity and craft of stage directors and choreographers. Our goals are to provide opportunities to practice the crafts of directing and choreography; to gather and disseminate craft and career information; to promote the profession to emerging talent; to provide opportunities for exchange of knowledge among directors and choreographers; to increase the awareness of the value of directors’ and choreographers’ work, and to convene around issues affecting theatre artists.
Because the work can often feel isolating, and these career paths can feel inaccessible to emerging artists, SDCF events and programs are designed to offer access, opportunity and community to directors and choreographers at all levels of career.
