“The NMCA training program was my choice for in-depth study of Michael Chekhov’s method of acting. I chose to come from Israel several times and complete the certification program and how the choice paid off!”
-Ofir Duan, Actor & Michael Chekhov Teacher/Coach.

NMCA offers a variety of training programs throughout the year, in addition to certification programs for actors, directors, and designers, as well as artists who are interested in teaching NMCA’s pedagogical approach to Chekhov’s body of work.  We make the Michael Chekhov Playbook that contains extensive charts, lecture notes and resources available to participants for a 75% discount from its retail price. This work is not just for people who identify as artists.  We encourage expanded applications for human health and development practitioners.
