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

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. The 2017 congress will be held June 22-25 in New York City at The New School.
