The Platform Year
Training the acting instrument is the first goal in year one. The Meisner technique, voice and text, movement and improvisation introduce you to the road of discovery of one’s self as an artist. Next, you begin to explore the technical aspects of working in front of a camera and have the opportunity to learn the information necessary for an actor to function with professionalism on a set.You also begin to work on your craft. You start to explore the given circumstances of a scene and how to own them in an authentic way, taking what the writer has given you and learning how to make those circumstances your truth.While there are many facets to a successful acting career, it all starts with the pure artistry of acting. So your first year at NYCDA is dedicated to developing your acting instrument. It’s an exciting year where you’ll find yourself as an actor and grow, building essential skills and techniques to craft authentic, believable performances. Our program is grounded in the Meisner technique, pioneered by American master Sanford Meisner. You will also study the Stanislavski System of acting, from which all modern acting techniques derive. Of course, you will also receive extensive training in voice, movement, improvisation and more.As the year progresses you’ll really develop your craft, exploring each scene’s unique circumstances so the truths the writer has given you fuel every movement, every impulse, every expression and inflection. At the end of this year comes the fork in the road where you declare whether you’ll be continuing in our Film and Television Performance Program or the Theater, Film and Television Performance Program with its added emphasis on theater. Advancement to the Film and Television Year or the Theater Year at NYCDA is by invitation only and is based on teacher evaluations, academic standing and final performances reviewed by the Academic Leadership Team....
