With a faculty that rotates throughout the year SEAD provides students with opportunities to work with renowned and innovative artists from around the world as well as to choreograph and present their work to teach in the public adult and childrens education program offered by the house, to perform in and outside school, to participate in exchange programs abroad and to create and make life long contacts.
