The Sadie-Rose Residency Program provides one week of rehearsal space (up to 6 hours a day based on studio availability) for selected choreographers. In addition, each artist-in-residence will engage with our local community by teaching one movement class that is open to the public. There also may be the opportunity for an informal, curated showing of work created during the residency week geared toward revealing for audiences something about the artist process and motivation for work created. It is not a formal showing. (CPR: Choreographic Process Revealed) Artists in Residence may perform at the Choreographer’s Showcase which takes please twice each year in February and in July or August. SpectorDance will also provide housing with a local family if available, but we will not provide food or travel stipends. Because housing is a challenge for us, we can accommodate solo and duet artists only. Those interested in attending with more artists will need to provide your own housing.
"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 and all immigrants. It is space dedicated to creating and telling personal stories of struggle, transformation, beauty, and truth."
