Actor’s Academy Dress Code

 

There is a strict dress code that applies to all students who are accepted into the program.

While it may seem unusual to you, it is typical of conservatories to require students to dress in

this neutral manner. It will keep you from “costuming” yourself for class each day and set you

up for working in a more professional manner. You will start to enjoy the freedom of crawling

out of bed and being worry free about your attire for the day.
