In addition to DC, we have graduates working professionally in Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Baltimore, St. Louis, Richmond, Paris, London, Chicago, Miami, Cleveland, even Australia and Switzerland. Wherever they end up, graduates become part of a robust network of NCDA grads and faculty that are always willing to lend a hand and help each-other navigate the complex world of professional acting.
