Train alongside qualified peers who are as committed and focused as you are. This is a highly competitive program.
Study with professional full-time faculty who are experienced in a breadth of material, methodologies and styles, so you get experience with training using a variety of methodologies united by common artistic goals.
Receive individual attention to your training progress, in a rigorous and collaborative environment, and no "cookie-cutter" actors: IC strives to identify and develop your unique contributions to the art.
