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.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience at American Academy of Dramatic Arts - Los Angeles: Involves every aspect of performing arts into one - acting.

3 College Senior

Student Body at American Academy of Dramatic Arts - Los Angeles: The student body is diverse as far as race and ethnicity go. It is not that diverse intellectually or philosophically. There are many cross wearing Christians and few people of other beliefs or mindsets.

Some students are diligent have it together and manage their time well. Others drag people down and don't commit to their work.

Students can be a little backwards thinking when it comes to racial perception and stereotypes and some are in fact okay with perpetuating these negative perceptions

3 College Senior

Academic Experience at American Academy of Dramatic Arts - Los Angeles: The workload can be focused a little too much on the stuff that doesn't pertain to acting. There should be more time spent on your feet and not in a chair sitting and listening. The mask work in movement is really great for releasing and being free. The same goes for Physical acting which gets students to be more expressive with their bodies and out of their head. That course should be every year all year and not just one semester once a week.

The facilities could be lit better and not as cold. The feeling the lights in the room give off make many people feel lousy and tired.

Another thing to add is that there should be way more time spent on techniques and developing them rather than getting into scene work too early. I spent two weeks in class before I had scene work which was way way sooner than other programs

3 College Senior

Academic Experience at American Academy of Dramatic Arts - Los Angeles: The school needs more acting courses for first year students. As well as more modern teaching methods that other Drama schools offer. Sure its effective for some but its leaving the other students lagging behind in their growth

3 College Senior

Overall Experience at American Academy of Dramatic Arts - Los Angeles: I did learn some new things and grow but just not as much as I expected. There were a lot of people in my first year and I think the faculty bit off more than they could chew when it came to managing numbers and getting adequate attention on each student. It can be tough for an older student in their late twenties who is surrounded by many who are only a year or tow out of high school and don't have the same appreciation for being in class as you would. The curriculum could use some more customization to each students weaknesses and what they need to work on. THe one thing that was disappointing was the lack of variety of teaching techniques at the school that is talked about in promotional videos. Sure the school has first year teachers who use Hagen, Meisner, And some other names but none of the first year teachers use Adler, Laban, Linklater, or Stanislavsky. Some teachers also need to be harder in their disciplinary actions towards lazy students who waste other peoples time and money

Some teachers will help you grow and answer your questions and get to know what is bugging you and what you want to work on.
