Teachers & School Counselors

NYCDA is dedicated to supporting the education community and the industry with workshops and resources to encourage anyone passionate about the dramatic arts.

Request a Group Workshop: We offer complimentary on-camera workshops to groups residing in or visiting New York City. Educators and students unable to visit New York can request an off-campus workshop at their school, theater or performance center.

Nominate Your Student: Do you have a student seeking performance training for Film, Television, and Theater? Nominate your student for admission by submitting the Actor Nomination Form and we will give them priority consideration.

Submit an Online Recommendation: Use the online recommendation form to submit your official recommendation for a student. Students applying to NYCDA are required to submit two recommendation letters that attests to the applicant’s personal character, work ethic, and passion for the performing arts. Personal recommendations from a non-family member will be accepted.
