The new Sadie Rose Residency Program provides one week of rehearsal and performance space for selected choreographers. Each artist-in-residence will engage with our local community by teaching one movement class that is open to the public. In addition, there will be a curated showing of work created during the residency week.
Interested Choreographers: Please contact Fran Spector Atkins for information and application process. At this time, we can accommodate solo and duet artists only.

"The Sadie Rose Residency Program is named after my grandmothers, Sadie Spector and Rose Goldberg. These women were immigrants from Russia who came to America for a better life. Two generations later, I am blessed to own a state-of-the art studio and performance space, and to have the privilege of being an artist and teacher. My grandmothers did not speak English and had limited opportunities. Their sacrifices are the foundation for my life's work. The Sadie Rose Residency program is a way to honor my grandmothers, all women, and all immigrants. It is space dedicated to creating and telling personal stories of struggle, transformation, beauty, and truth." Fran Spector Atkins
