The National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts provides a structured, full time, immersive program that encourages collaboration, imagination, and innovation. With our team of working professional actors and directors, we also emphasize individual attention and small class size – typically no more than ten students per class. Plus, our school is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), meaning that our standards are continually reviewed by a third party.
Instructors at NCDA help foster and sustain a creative working environment that is respectful and nurturing of each person’s creativity and individuality. The atmosphere can be intense, but it is always supportive. Geared toward training the next generation of professional actors, the NCDA’s curriculum includes a strong focus on the business of acting. In addition to the techniques that students will apply to their work on stage, they will gain the skills they will need to succeed in other aspects of the industry, including audition and callback techniques, marketing and branding, business planning, and budgeting.
With this well-rounded approach, students will graduate NCDA with an understanding of what it takes to enter into the professional creative industry.
