In addition to our public performances, SCDT offers special showings of our performances to area students, groups, and underserved populations. These events include a question and answer session with the company artists. Information for teachers on tying the performances to curriculum is provided to educators in attendance. Please contact the SCDT box office for more information and to reserve seats.

SCDT is available for in-school lecture/demonstrations. Please contact SCDT to arrange a company visit to your school or facility.

Various visual art projects often accompany each performance. The theme and supplies are provided to art teachers by SCDT, and the student work is then featured in the lobby, or even within the program, at each performance. To obtain information about participating in this program, please contact SCDT.

At every SCDT performance, Theater and Dance students from area schools gain valuable experience and volunteer hours assisting with set design, lighting design, sound engineering, and back stage crew work. Students also have opportunities to assist with fundraising events in similar capacities. To obtain information about participating in this program, please contact SCDT.

Each year, SCDT hires one to two company apprentices to train and perform with the SCDT dancers. These apprentices gain valuable experience and are paid for performing and teaching. Occasionally, SCDT also enlists a company trainee who also works and performs with the company to gain valuable experience. Dancers interested in these opportunities should audition for the company or submit audition materials by mail.

A select number of need-based scholarships are issued to dancers wishing to attend SCDT’s Winter and Summer Dance Intensives. Please contact SCDT directly for instructions about how to apply for this financial aid.
