American Academy of Dramatic Arts - New York Reviews

The teachers were amazing. The things they taught me about acting and life are indispensable. They're in the middle of a massive curriculum overhaul so there were frustrating transparency issues with the administration. Frequently, there was a shortage of classrooms/rehearsal spaces so they rent off-campus locations. Booking rehearsal rooms as a student was hard and sometimes you would get kicked out because a Company show needed that room and they take precedence. The changes occurring are ambitious and ultimately, it's too much too soon. Students found themselves getting screwed on accident because there are too many students and not enough time and resources. Sometimes it felt that all of my money was burned on renting off-campus and bribing industry to come and see us. However, they worked out most of the kinks on my graduating class. The staff were what made it for me.
Review American Academy of Dramatic Arts - New York
The school offers anything an aspiring actor could need. Not only do they have an extended library with any play or book you could ever need, but they have the best teachers, rooms available for rehearsals, lots of free events and shows with older students and frequently offers cheap or free admission to events in or regarding the professional business. The learning environment is open and positive and everyone strives to work like professionals.
The American Academy has such an effective curriculum, with teachers that really care about the students succeeding and prevailing in the acting world.
