Student Experience

Each year we welcome a diverse mix of performing artists who are united by two things; their inherent talent and their passion for acting. IDSA is not just training ground for ground-breaking talent, it’s also a community of dedicated performers who provide a supportive environment for personal growth, nurturing talent and forming life-long friendships.


At IDSA we strive to offer our students an invaluable training experience that will prepare them for a professional career across television, theatre or screen. In addition to our carefully curated curriculum, we also offer master classes with accredited industry practitioners, free workshops, industry talks as well as, student surgery and pastoral care.

We offer intensive training via our physical schools, based in both London and Los Angeles – for those who cannot access our physical premises – we offer online training, accessible to actors worldwide.


Our students benefit from training by an accomplished faculty who are specialist performance teachers who are predominant practitioners in industry, with extensive links to industry. All tutors work with their students to explore a wide range of styles and techniques, specifically for theatre, TV and film.
