SDC WORKSHOP FOUNDATION
Founded in 1965, Stage Directors and Choreographers Workshop Foundation exists to develop and promote the creativity and craft of stage directors and choreographers. Our goals are Access, Connectivity, and Legacy for these artists. SDCF creates paths for early career directors and choreographers from all backgrounds to interact with established artists all over the country; we put mid-career artists in the room together to solve issues they face in the business; and we reach beyond the theatre industry to tell the story of what directors and choreographers contribute to the American theatre, and, by extension, to the conversation about the importance of art in daily life.
SDCF is the nation’s only organization dedicated to supporting theatre directors and choreographers by providing opportunities to practice the crafts of directing and choreography; to promote the profession to emerging talent; 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. It serves the needs of artists at all stages, building a cross-generational, national theatre community.
