SITI Workshops in New York City

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). 

There are no drop-in classes scheduled for the summer of 2014, as most of the Company will be in residence at the Getty in Los Angeles, but please come back to this page in the fall for updates on future drop-off in classes.  

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. You are also encouraged to apply for our Summer Intensive, which takes place on the campus of Skidmore College each June and welcomes all levels. 

To keep updated about SITI's programming, we welcom you to sign up for our mailing list. You can also follow SITI Company on Facebook and Twitter for frequent updates on the Company's work and educational initiatives. Thank you!

“This has been one of the most intense, brilliant, life-changing, inspirational and growing experiences of my life. I will treasure the learning and new awareness throughout my career and cannot wait to add them. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this training to committed theater practitioners.”

—Ali Kennedy Scott, Saratoga 2012
