SPDT’s COVID-19 Response
SPDT has led many initiatives in the field of Arts & Health. Since introducing our signature program, Caring for the Caregiver, in 1992, we have offered resources for self-care and reflection to professional healthcare workers. These professionals spend much of their time in service to others and don’t alway have time to reconnect with themselves and one another. During this COVID-19 crisis, we recognize the demands placed on caregivers more than ever and are thankful for their daily work. At this time, we encourage you to visit our “Arts & Health” tab and to contact us if we can offer virtual programming for your community.
Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater (SPDT) is an internationally recognized performance company, founded in 1979 by Stuart Pimsler, and co-directed with Suzanne Costello since 1984. The company has been presented throughout the US and internationally in Canada, Europe, Israel, Taiwan, Russia, Bermuda, China, and Mexico. SPDT’s community inclusive work, which engages a diverse array of populations – students, caregivers, audiences, and community members – has been lauded as a “National Model” by The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and its Arts & Healthcare work has been recognized for “Best Practices” by the National Endowment for the Arts.
