Retraining Foundation SSUDK

The Umschulungsstiftung für Bühnenkünstler (Retraining Foundation for Stage Artists) was founded in 1993 by the SBKV. In 1997, the Foundation was opened also to non-members, and since 2013 it has operated under the name  Swiss Foundation for the Retraining of Performing Artists  SSUDK. The purpose of the foundation is to provide advice and support to performing artists living and working in the German-speaking part of Switzerland, Ticino and Liechtenstein, especially to dancers going through a career transition.

In 2015, the project “Transition-Center SSUDK” was launched, with the aim of creating a contact point at the crossroads of one’s career development with counseling, coaching, workshop and financial support.
