|1.||American Musical and Dramatic Academy|
Hollywood based acting conservatory, two year school, degrees offered (BA program, although this is a recent addition before 3 years ago only a certificate program was offered) also located in New York City. Many AMDA alumni can be found throughout the greater Los Angeles area, and certain celeb alumni can be found throughout the acting community at large (re: Tyne Daly, Frances Callier, Gretchen Mol, etc)
and good starter school for youthful individuals looking to set up root in Los Angeles, though certainly lacking in quality business connections, definitely a good way to learn the basics.
