Program Description

ACTING FOR FILM- Designed for actors with all levels of experience, the New York Film Academy’s acting school provides actors with intensive training in screen acting, modern on-camera acting techniques, and supporting acting classes.

Unlike other acting colleges, New York Film Academy places emphasis on providing practical experience and hands-on education to our students so they can both develop their craft as actors and excel at acting in front of the camera. Our Acting for Film instructors are all professional, working actors, writers, directors, and producers—veterans of Hollywood, independent film, and television—who give each student a personal focus in every acting class and teach the rigorous discipline necessary for launching a career in film and television.

Both the Academy’s hands-on approach and attention to application of acting skills to performing make New York Film Academy one of the top acting schools in the nation.

MUSICAL THEATRE- The New York Film Academy’s musical theatre school offers aspiring musical theatre actors a one-of-a-kind opportunity to develop their skills as triple threat performers by studying with faculty who are working professionals on Broadway. Students enrolling in the musical theatre school work directly with instructors who have appeared in numerous Broadway and touring productions, top-rate regional theatre, opera, hit movie musicals, and television shows. They receive real world training that prepares them to achieve success in the industry, creating an educational experience few other musical theatre colleges can offer.

Attracting aspiring musical theatre actors from around the world, the New York Film Academy’s musical theatre school gives students the opportunity to study their craft in the central hub for launching musical theatre careers—New York City. Students learn and hone their skills in acting, singing, and dancing in world-class facilities that include voice practice rooms, state-of-the-art dancing studios, and professionally equipped recording and shooting studios.

Along with this unparalleled musical theatre training, we offer the chance to “be seen” by other professionals in the business (agents, casting directors, choreographers, composers, directors, producers) in the number one musical theatre market in the world. We offer two “main stage” productions each year, along with both a Summer and Winter New Reading Series and multiple masterclasses each semester. If you join us for our two-year musical theatre program, you will graduate with numerous on-camera clips, a voiceover reel, and extensive on-screen experience.

Come to New York City, study with a faculty who knows what it takes to “make it” and push yourself to your creative limit: only at the New York Film Academy!
