We asked our guests about their experience. Check out NSD students reviews.

“My time attending classes in Moscow, where mornings were dedicated to acting from 9:30 am to 1 pm and afternoons to movement from 1 to 2:30 pm, was nothing short of transformative. The comprehensive curriculum, expert instruction, and supportive environment fostered tremendous personal and artistic growth. Whether delving into character development or mastering movement, each class contributed to a holistic approach to performance. I emerged from this experience with newfound skills, confidence, and a deeper passion for the craft. A truly invaluable experience that I will carry with me throughout my acting journey.” Akash

“It’s been a journey of discovery and learning, with a unique blend of Russian theatre traditions coming together with a Indian theatre students shared essence of acting approaches. The simplicity of the teaching technique was refreshing, making it easier to absorb the knowledge and apply it in practice. I was particularly impressed by the attention training sessions, Tartakovskii’s breathing method, and body percussion exercises. These have proven to be effective in enhancing focus and body awareness. A standout moment for me was learning about the Face Muscles Strengthening and Relaxation exercises with spoon, a technique that was completely new to me and incredibly useful”. Kunal Bhange

“The classes we are having here, are a beautiful amalgamation of theory and practice. To start from the basics and slowly move towards the complexities of techniques is something that is being achieved. I as a student am experiencing small realisations that mean so much more in acting than I knew they did. Improvisations are making it possible for us to work in unison and learn from each other too. The speech class, the class on breathing and movement are underlining the minute details of work we have been doing and making us understand what more is to be done and practiced regularly. Teachers energies are so lovely that all of it is sinking inside and becoming an experience of learning that is teaching us something that we have not had thought of about earlier” Mrunal

NSD is participating in the International students festival of final year shows “Your chance/GITIS fest”. Students will present the show “Indradjit”.
