An Update from SITI and Skidmore College
In an effort to keep pace with ongoing pandemic conditions, SITI’s Finale Summer Workshop at Skidmore College will transition to a virtual format and take place from June 12–July 1, 2022. Although disappointing, this decision was necessary to allow Company members and artists to train together in the safest way possible.
The three-week program will build on our two years of experience gained in the digital studio and the highly successful virtual intensive last summer. Additionally, we encourage existing or newly-formed ensembles to apply and train together in-person if local conditions safely permit; appropriate group rates will be offered. The daily schedule and program cost have been adjusted to reflect a virtual delivery and the program’s scholarship fund – aimed at welcoming students with promise who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend or who have been historically underrepresented in our studios – has also been increased. We are hopeful these changes will provide more accessibility for all artists, particularly those in the global community for whom travel and visas present unique and sometimes insurmountable hurdles.
The previously announced Alumni Weekend will be postponed until Fall 2022 as we make alternative plans to host a program in New York City.
Certainly, this change of plan brings disappointment, as Skidmore and Saratoga Springs have been SITI’s summer home for 30 years, but we look forward to coming together and safely sharing virtual space. And so, in our final year, as always, we forge ahead.
Virtual Workshop: June 12-July 1, 2022
Join us in our final summer workshop with Skidmore College as we honor the past, celebrate the present and lay groundwork for the future. Fifty artists will be invited to take part in this intensive program that will be offered virtually in light of ongoing pandemic conditions. A virtual experience will provide global artists access to this community and allow SITI Company members and participants to train and perform safely. If conditions permit locally, we encourage existing or newly formed ensembles to apply and train together; appropriate group rates will be offered.
Ensemble Participation: Although the intensive will be delivered online, existing ensembles, or ensembles pre-formed for this experience, are encouraged to apply and train together in-person if safety conditions permit in their locale. An ensemble must be comprised of 2-6 artists and each artist must submit an individual application.
- Application fee (per individual, non-refundable): $60
- Application fee for participant applying as a member of an ensemble (non-refundable): $20
- Individual Tuition: $1,700
- Ensemble Tuition: 2 artists=$1,500 per person, 3 artists=$1,233 per person, 4 artists=$925 per person, 5 artists=$740 per person, 6 artists=$617 per person
Scholarships: SITI Company and Skidmore College are committed to fostering diversity and inclusion. To that end, the Workshop has established scholarship funds aimed at welcoming students with promise who would not otherwise have the opportunity to attend our program, or who have been historically underrepresented in our studios. The scholarships are in the form of tuition remission.
Application are open. Deadline to apply is April 15, 2022.
