W E L C O M E

IAMT is a post-secondary, two-year professional training program for students 17 years of age and up (exceptional dancers who are 15 or 16 years of age may be considered). We are looking to work with students who have the passion and desire to pursue a career in musical theatre.  We believe in a positive approach to teaching by celebrating what is unique in you, while refining the unexplored potential of your individual artistry. We anticipate an exciting and energetic school year full of hard work and growth for all of our students. The Institute for American Musical Theatre is "Broadway's School"

our programs

learn from those who do.

Developing a healthy vocal technique is one of the most important factors in becoming a reliable performer.  With VoiceBarre® as their foundation, IAMT students have the confidence in knowing they will be able to sustain 400 performances a year schedule on Broadway! VoiceBarre® classes happen 3 days a week during the school year!

DANCE

Living in New York City provides our students with the opportunity to study with our outstanding working faculty as well as interact with special invited guest artists.  When all of your teachers are Broadway professionals, it is easy to see how high the bar is set.  The IAMT students do an average of 13 dance classes a week in Ballet, Musical Theatre, Tap, Commercial Jazz Funk, Hip Hop, Modern/Contemporary and repertoire. We dance more at IAMT than most college "dance programs".

Work with those who DO at IAMT!

ACTING

IAMT is also the only musical theatre program in the country that teaches "The art of the BREATH™" acting technique created and developed by IAMT Acting Head Mr. Michael Minarik.  Acting is a deeply personal experience, and we want our students to have a broad palette of colors to paint with.

BOOTCAMP

 BROADWAY 

Each Summer, IAMT gives students AGES 12-19 from around the country and around the World the opportunity to work with IAMT's outstanding, all professional Broadway faculty!  We believe that, in addition to having fun at a summer program, the level of training should be HIGH and the IAMT faculty is among of absolute best in the country!
