It was one of the first specialized universities that embodied the concept of training versatile artists who could sing, dance and act on stage. Today, AMDA continues to develop and implement innovative courses in the performing arts to meet the changing demands of the entertainment industry, but the basic concept remains the same - comprehensive training of future artists.
AMDA has approximately 1,500 students from around the world. The academy provides amazing facilities for portfolio preparation. Students have access to rehearsal rooms, musical instruments, state-of-the-art studios and equipment for editing, recording and filming, etc.
In addition to direct classes and rehearsals, students perform in concerts and plays, and are invited to parties organized by the university. There is an opportunity to meet leading producers, directors and agents recruiting artists, which gives a brilliant chance to attract attention.
Graduates of the academy perform on Broadway, in American and foreign theater groups, in TV shows, act in movies, etc. Many graduates have become successful and popular directors, composers, choreographers, scriptwriters, event organizers, etc.
The academy has a Career Center that helps students submit their portfolios and resumes to various organizations for job search.
