I have always loved The American Musical Dramatic Academy since 2015. This college is located in the heart of Manhattan New York. I've attended the summer conservatory program straight out of high school in 2015. The dorms are huge, there is a cooking area, lounging area, computer area, a deck etc. AMDA is a very diverse college. There is diverse teachers, students and faculty members. AMDA is welcome to all races, colors and genders and does not discriminate. If you love the performing arts then AMDA College is the place for you! AMDA also has 2 luxurious campuses in Manhattan,New York and Los Angelos California!

I am learning so much. Is it easy, NO! I am better than I thought in some areas, we are all our own worst critics, but need help in others. Working on my speech and diction is not easy, who knew I have an accent. Several of the instructors are working professionals so I am learning from those who have been there.
American Musical and Dramatic Academy has two campuses. There is one in New York and in Los Angeles California. I can say that going to AMDA it has really helped me to learn more about the entertainment industry. The teachers here are well experienced and not only have they had experience but they have been taught and had the chance to work with professionals. You have teachers and student from all over the world. The working environment is excellent. Most of the work happens not just in the classroom but it is required/ highly recommended outside the classroom. The dorms different than regular college dorms.
