We're Back!

In late July, New York gave its famed institutions of higher learning the green light to re-open, and The New York Conservatory is back on campus!

Our full-time degree programs will begin (in person) on September 14th, 2020. We’ll work together to stay healthy, deal with issues effectively, and push ourselves to create the best generation of New York-trained actors this century!

In any training, or in any career, most of us go through the “is this right for me?” phase. We think things like, “This is harder than I thought it would be!” “This is way more personal and more physically taxing than I expected.” A good conservatory should help you move through that.
