      Overall Rating:

      This is the most comprehensive, concentrated, program in the DC area, with the most patient, dedicated, intelligent faculty I could imagine working with. I've trained in Film, Television, and theater, in multiple styles. I am so excited about my training, and have used it to perfect effect. This year I was nominated for a Helen Hayes award as best lead actor. The Conservatory is the best, you'll get out of it what you put into it, and you'll be extremely successful if you work hard.Couldn't recommend them more. Absolutely the best training in DC.
