Congratulations to DSDW Teacher Miss Jenn on her recent award for her video project! 

The not-for-profit Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation (SDCF) has announced that the recipient of this year’s Breakout Award is Brooklyn-based choreographer Jenn Rose. The annual honor, which recognizes a “rising star” moment in the Off-Broadway arena, is given to an SDC Member for a production or selection of work that signals a shift in a career, the beginning of critical recognition, and/or the point of a breakthrough in pushing the medium forward. As a result of the ongoing pandemic closure of live in-person theater, the Breakout Award for the 2019-20 season was specifically designated to acknowledge a director or choreographer who created innovative or exciting digital work over the last year. Rose is being recognized for both her choreography and direction of A Little Light, created in March 2020, in response to the industry shutdown necessitated by COVID-19.
