About AADA

One of the oldest, most respected acting conservatories in the United States, the American Academy of Dramatic Arts has a history of graduating some of the most talented and successful film, television and stage actors.

Located in New York City, with a campus in Los Angeles the American Academy’s two year acting program teaches aspiring professional actors all aspects of their craft. Classes in Acting Techniques, Voice, Speech, Improvisation, Stage Combat and Acting for Film and Television are some examples of American Academy’s curriculum. Students also perform, giving them both experience and exposure.

A select number of students are invited to continue on with the company in the third-year advanced conservatory, where they are given the opportunity to perform for casting directors, managers and the like.

In addition to the courses and the performance opportunities students are given instruction in the business and marketing aspects of the industry, such as how to find an agent.

Courses are also taught by professional working actors who have a working knowledge of the profession and the current trends. There are also master classes with well-known actors and other industry professionals.

Since it is located in the heart of the theatre industry, actors may benefit professionally, artistically and personally from all of the offerings both on and off Broadway.

Admission to the program is almost exclusively based on the audition and interview. Prospective students perform contrasting monologues and undertake an interview with American Academy faculty.

Financial aid is available to qualifying students through loans, grants and other sources.
