Founded in New York in 1884, the The American Academy of Dramatic Arts was the first conservatory in the United States dedicated to the training of professional actors. It became the primary training ground for beginning actors and introduced systematic techniques for creating characters on stage.

To date, performances by Academy alumni have been nominated for 70 Oscars , 54 Tonys and 181 Emmys. Armand Assante, Lauren Bacall, Jim Backus, Danny DeVito, Eric Roberts, Spencer Tracy, and Gena Rowlands are just a few of well-known personalities that claim the Academy as their alma mater.
