The program is offered to emerging directors and choreographers, who are given the opportunity to observe master directors and choreographers as they work on Broadway, Off-Broadway and regional productions. Observers work from the first day of rehearsal to opening night.
Each observer receives a weekly stipend of $200 and a project travel stipend. Observers on productions outside of New York and away from their homes are provided with a small housing stipend if needed. Additionally Observers who are not members of SDC receive a free one-year associate membership upon SDCF's receipt of the Final Report.
