We foster a spirit of trust and courage in our students because we believe actors need to take risks. We encourage individuality and try to draw out the special talents in each and every one of our students. They are taught that a fine performer will have a strong sense of self but is unafraid to subsume it to a dramatic role.
The LSDA admits only a limited number of students each year because we want to maintain a close-knit learning environment. We believe this sets the right scene for growth and development for an actor.
