Hone your skills in song, spoken dialog, and dance. See how much you can grow as an artist without the pressure of other academic requirements.
Where do you want to be?
New York. Do the work, then take in the sights and sounds of NYC, where you can see some of the most accomplished performers in the world. Watch how the techniques you learn in class are embodied on stage when we attend Broadway, Off-Broadway, and Off-Off-Broadway shows.
Who do you want to meet?
Professional contacts. Our teachers have years of professional experience. Knowing both the business and artistic faces of acting, they share ways to break down habits and create new entrances into character. Described as "outstanding" with an "amazing amount of knowledge to share," the instructors provide new tools for you to use on your professional journey. Past luminaries have included Mana Allen (Core Faculty Cap21), Kenneth Marks (Uncle Ben in Spiderman), Bartlett Sher (Lincoln Center Resident Director, and director of Metropolitan Opera's Two Boys); Chandra Lee Schwartz (Glinda in Wicked), Victoria Clark (Fairy Godmother in Cinderella), Michael Grief (director of Rent and Next to Normal), Paul McGill (Chorus Line), Heidi Blickenstaff (Little Mermaid), Michael McGoff (Production Stage Manager, La Cage aux Folles Tour), and JV Mercanti (Director/Casting Director).
