General Information About K D Studio
KD Studio Actors Conservatory was founded in 1979 as the entertainment business began venturing outside New York and Hollywood. Since then, Dallas/Ft Worth has become the eighth largest media market in the country. There are more than 25 professional theaters in the Metroplex; there are currently four network television shows shooting (with more nearby in Austin and Shreveport); there’s plenty of TV and radio commercial production. We even have one of the largest animation studios in the country—Funimation, creators of Dragon Ball. We believe that each student possesses unique qualities and strengths that can flourish in the right learning environment. We based the KD Studio Career Acting program, started in 1985, on that belief. In 2005 we added the Musical Theatre Performance Program and two years ago, the Motion Picture Production Program. We aim to prepare students for work in the entertainment industry. From the beginning, our training programs have been based upon embracing modern methods that promote discipline and self-discovery, along with the development of technique. Our faculty consists of working professionals and master teachers. They lead students to deeply felt, psychologically true and physically realized performances. To support this process, students receive constant feedback from faculty who consult collaboratively on their progress. The goal of KD College is to prepare students for careers in theatre, television and film. Our purpose is to provide a practical, post-secondary education that emphasizes the skills needed in today's competitive environment.
