Each year, SDC Foundation elevates the crafts of directing and choreography by:

  • Providing 25-30 paid Observerships and Fellowships for early to mid-career artists to hone their skills all over the country.
  • Highlighting the artistry of directors and choreographers with One-on-One Conversations and the Masters of the Stage podcast series.
  • Providing nuts-and-bolts career skills by hosting an Artistic Statement Clinic.
  • Creating access and connections, and generating new ideas by producing Symposia, Industry Roundtables for directors and choreographers, and Master Classes.
  • Connecting artists through speed-networking events for early-career directors.
  • Developing the next generation of artistic leaders by offering an Artistic Leadership Group aimed at grooming directors and choreographers to lead organizations.
  • Lifting up the art form by honoring directors and choreographers with our Fichandler, Callaway and “Mr. Abbott” Awards.
