Drop-In Classes

SITI Company members periodically lead drop-in classes for artists who have previous training with SITI Company. Drop-in classes are held on Saturdays from 11 AM – 2 PM at the SITI Studio (520 8th Avenue, suite 310). To register for a drop-in class and/or be added to our drop-in class mailing list, please e-mail training@siti.org. SITI is currently considering potential dates for Drop-In classes in Spring 2014 and will publish updates on this page when they are available. 

At this time Drop-In classes are only open to participants who have prior experience studying training directly with the SITI Company to allow for accelerated sessions. We value interest in the training from new students and hope to add more sessions open to a wider range of experience in the future. If you are interested in these future classes, please send us your contact information and a brief description of previous experience you have with the training, if any, to training@siti.orgYou are also encouraged to apply for our Summer Intensive, which takes place on the campus of Skidmore College each June and welcomes all levels.

Sign-up for drop-in training sessions is on a first-come, first-served basis and is capped at 25 participants per session. You may also simply show up for the Saturday training; however, due to space limitations, we strongly recommend pre-registering so that your space is reserved.

Each session costs $15. You may also purchase a package of sessions for a discounted price. Details about packages for 2014 will be posted soon.  We are determining our spring drop-in schedule and will post it on this page when it is finalized. Please e-mail Megan at training@siti.org for more information.
