The culture is good and the foundation is solid. The schedule is quite intense, which I like, but I could have come more prepared having had a summer suggestion to prepare. Also, having little to no formal training and never even visited NYC the first semester has been quite overwhelming. I believe in living in the solution and this and my faith is what is getting me through. I look forward to Christmas break and coming back refreshed!
Review American Musical & Dramatic Academy
A lot of the classes seem easy or straightforward at first, but a lot more work goes into them to really succeed than you would initially think. The classes can only benefit you as much as you're willing to give them. The teachers are incredible and knowledgable about the field, but they can't teach you to care. Knowing the steps to a dance, or the lines to your seemingly simple scene doesn't mean you'll be able to execute it right without putting in a lot of non mandatory work, and the teachers know whose working outside and whose not.
At the Los Angeles campus the teachers drive you to be your absolute best when it comes to performing. However trying to switch classes or majors is incredibly difficult and there is one English teacher (just one) who clearly has NO IDEA what he's doing, don't have him and you'll be fine.
