BOARD OF DIRECTORS
JOHN ENGSTROM, Treasurer
JEANNE PFEFFER, President
Jeanne joined the FACT/SF board in 2014, after five years of co-managing the company with Charles. She is proud to continue her support of FACT/SF's pursuit of creating rigorous and challenging contemporary dance, and of the integrity and aplomb that characterizes the organization. She is a trained dancer, choreographer, writer, and social scientist currently working at the intersection of art and action as Development Director at CounterPulse. When not working, Jeanne avidly consumes art and culture, climbs rock walls, cooks without recipes, treks the streets and paths of the Bay Area, and does her best to enjoy the ride.
Charles Slender-White began his career with Provincial Dances Theatre in Yekaterinburg, Russia. His choreography embraces technical formalism with regular injections of quirk and wit, while incorporating the risque, the macabre, and the unexpected. He has worked as a dance artist throughout North America, Europe, and Russia, and in Hong Kong and Australia. Slender-White is one of 32 Countertechnique Teachers worldwide. In addition to extensive studies with Anouk van Dijk, he spent a year in mentorship with Elizabeth Streb via CHIME Across Borders at the Margaret Jenkins Dance Lab. Slender-White completed his undergraduate degrees in Dance & Performance Studies and English Literature at UC Berkeley, and received additional early training at Berkeley Ballet Theatre and the American Dance Festival.
