About the Gap Programs

The AMDA Gap Programs unite college-age students, between 18-25, from all over the world for an urban performing arts adventure and a culturally immersive experience. Offering world-class training in acting and musical theatre, our programs provide students with a unique opportunity to live out their passion for performance at the center of all the action in New York City!

Designed with the idea that culture, diversity, and passion are fuel for creative expression, AMDA Gap Programs take students through a transformative performing arts training experience, unparalleled in the US. Students are enriched with meaningful exchanges with like-minded peers and receive valuable mentorship from industry professionals who offer wisdom and tricks of the trade.

In addition to receiving world-class training, students explore New York City through weekly excursions and activities that include trips to Broadway shows, studio tours, landmark attractions, museums, and more.
