I still haven't had the chance to start school in The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, but the whole enrolling process has been extremely easy thanks to the care, time, and facility the academy provides to students enrolling. The advisors take their time to explain to us and show us every step of the way, from the audition to the first day of classes. I believe The American Academy of Dramatic Arts is the best school for me since it has amazing history with creating great and well educated actors with the amazing work an actor portraits. From teachers to alumnus, it speaks for it self. I'm honored to be excepted and have the same opportunity to learn more about my passion and be surrounded by many others that share the same goals as I do. By my experience to this day I happily would apply again if I needed to.

The students at my school create a safe and warm environment that allows us to excel in our studies. There is no competition, although we are all working toward the same goal. There are so many international students and local students from all over southern California learning from each other and teaching each other in order to grow strong together. We explore intimate themes and ideas that would otherwise be put at halt if we didn't share respect or value our fellow classmates. The tuition of our school is difficult to obtain, but the curriculum covers so much I think it may even be cheaper than studying acting on your own. The school provides many resources and guidance and even showcases the senior class to people in show business.

HUGE clash of different people and opinions, and drama is inevitable anywhere you go - especially at an acting school...but we manage! It really is fun and interesting. You meet great people.
