NTI is the perfect launchpad into the world of professional theater. It arms you with the skills, confidence, and theatrical experience necessary to either pursue a life in theater, or get into an acclaimed college theater program.
If you’re not quite sure if college is the right choice for you or whether you’d like to invest in four years of training at a collegiate level, NTI might be the perfect nextstep. NTI is structured conservatory-style, meaning you will learn how to succeed in an intensive, interdisciplinary schedule that is more rigorous and hands on than your average liberal arts program.
Your other classmates (a lot of whom are in college) become your collaborators, friends, and your first line to creating new work after your semester ends. Not only do the faculty at NTI give you one-of-a-kind individual training for the semester, they will also challenge you to meet your fullest potential as an artist, collaborator and individual. You will meet over 60 professional contacts working in places like New York City, LA, Chicago, and London, who will help you understand how to work in the industry.
While taking a gap semester or year with NTI, you will be considered a college freshman and will earn undergraduate credits, transferable to major US colleges and universities.
