We believe that learning to teach acting is an ongoing process that does not end with an MFA, nor with the attainment of tenure, nor with 20 years experience.

Every June, 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.

In 2017, the Congress was held over 4 days at The New School. Guests and speakers included Olympia Dukakis, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Felix Ivanov, Rosemarie Quinn, Beth McGuire, Sheril Antonio, and Kirya Traber, as well as presentations and workshops my members including Bill Gelber, Jenny Mercein, Cynthia Henderson, Carla Noack, Lisa Pelikan, and Julia Martin.

The 2018 Congress will be held June 16-19 in New York City. Further details will be announced in early 2018.
