Review for National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The National Conservatory was the best educational choice I ever made. It boasts an excellent program of linear study, nurturing and supportive faculty and staff, and an incredibly loyal and helpful student body and alumni group. Not only was I able to finish my degree in a hyper-intensive course of study that pushed me and helped me achieve my potential, but I found true success in the field, friends for life, and memories that I will pass on to my grandchildren. The Conservatory also constantly updates and expands it's curriculum, and I have been back on more than one occasion to take seminars and classes that did not exist when I was a student FOR FREE. Thanks NCDA!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My career as an actor, director, playwright, and educator.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them find better financial ground so that admissions could become more selective. Build them a larger stage to produce plays for the public.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The constant application of what I learned while at NCDA, and the amazing friendships I developed with teachers, staff and students.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Administrative, educational, and all kind.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build a new, bigger, better location and become a magnet for training the best performers in the country. Expand the film program and buy state of the art equipment for students to train with. Hire famous guests to speak at the school!

Ways to make it better...

The space had better parking, and more up to date theatrical equipment.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Financial, and the changing nature of the business.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The Conservatory breeds wonderful, caring, practical, and professional actors. And changes the lives of all who walk through the door.
