Program Description:
In this highly competitive 13-week study abroad program offered only in the Fall semester, daily acting classes in the Stanislavsky System, the Michael Chekhov Technique, and movement classes (including Biomechanics and Ballet) are complemented with voice, design, Russian language, and Russian theater history. Students study in the vibrant city of Moscow, visit cultural sites, see theater, and train with master teachers of the Moscow Art Theater School. Classes are held six days a week, from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm.

The Moscow Art Theater was established in 1898 by Konstantin Stanislavsky and V.I. Nemirovich-Danchenko who, in their mission to discover the truth in drama, discovered that its essence is the ensemble. Through their close association with Anton Chekhov and his plays and through Stanislavsky’s influential teachings, The Moscow Art Theater became the birthplace of modern theater and modern actor training.

NTI has been collaborating with the Moscow Art Theater for more than 20 years. It is the only American program where students from all over the country can train for an entire semester at the Moscow Art Theater School and work with members of one of the most accomplished theaters in the world.
