The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts is one of the best acting schools New York City has to offer. Every year we travel, see and audition thousands of aspiring actors only to allow a select few into our conservatory. Those students get the opportunity to experience the most demanding, comprehensive and rewarding acting training for today's aspiring actor. Many industry insiders have long recognized NYCDA as the premier film and television acting training ground in the country. Acting is not a prerequisite for admission. What all our students do have is that rare combination of traits that simply cannot be taught: instinctive acting talent and an insatiable drive to succeed.

Sound like you? Come pay us a visit and find out why NYCDA is right for you. We hold auditions and tours Mondays and Fridays by appointment only. Schedule your visit today and call the Office of Admission at 888-645-0030 x4080 or just become a VIP.
