DescriptionThe Acting Program offers a wide range of performance training in acting for stage, film and television. The intense eight-term curriculum is a blend of rigorous performance-based immersion in craft and technique, combined with a challenging range of academic-based studies, all resulting in a well-rounded education in the arts. AMDA’s Acting Program also provides numerous opportunities for onstage production and performance experience.

Lower division courses begin with a focus on the actor’s imagination and an exploration of his or her inner resources as they relate to the external demands of the craft. Early coursework develops vocal and physical foundations necessary for the professional actor. Training then broadens to include script analysis, dramatic theory and modes of behavior pertaining to various historical periods and relevant performance media. Supplemental course offerings, such as stage combat, improvisation, dialects and dance and movement, to name a few, provide actors with an even broader range for potential career opportunities. Required Critical Studies courses increase the actors’ understanding of their worlds, their critical reasoning abilities and their abilities to express themselves effectively as educated and informed artists and citizens.
