SDC Full Membership is available to directors and choreographers who provide proof of paid prior engagement as a stage director or choreographer for any theatrical production or companies organized under Actors’ Equity, AGVA, AGMA, or SAG/AFTRA.

SDC Work Rules state that Members must work under contract whenever and wherever they direct or choreograph. SDC has many contracts that make this possible.  Please refer to the SDC Contracts page for more information.

*All Full Members (both current & new) are charged a Special Assessment-Relocation & Technology fee, which was approved by the Membership at the 2014 Annual Membership Meeting.  This $150 Assessment contributes to SDC’s capacity building advancements with the relocation of the offices and an information system conversion.
