Our programming serves to enable a deeper understanding and passion for the craft of teaching acting, while fostering collaboration and discussion.

Every year, the National Alliance of Acting Teachers hosts a National Congress. All members of the organization are invited to attend the event that features master teachers, panels, hands-on workshops, and the opportunity for intimate conversation about the craft of teaching acting. The 2020 congress was held online over the weekend of August 8 – 9, 2020. Here are the details from last year’s conference:

After a tidal wave of stress in the face of the pandemic, we need to recharge our passion for training. This Year’s National Alliance of Acting Teachers Congress is devoted to replenishing your resilience by offering workshops in:

· Rejuvenation (healing, self-care for educators and mindful laughter)

· Inspiration (empathy, gratitude and motivational activities)

· Celebration of innovation (member presentations, discussions and virtual gatherings)

As we prepare for the fall , this is an opportunity to come together as a community to nurture the humanity required to train a new generation of actors.
