History

The school was founded as a part of the Conservatoire de Paris in 1795, which split in 1946, one school for the dramatic arts, and the other for music and dance, known as the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris (CNSMDP). The conservatories are run under the auspices of the French Ministry of Culture and Communication.

Academics

It offers a three-year study program, with the CNSAD diploma awarded on completion.[1] Every year groups contain approximately thirty students (usually fifteen men and fifteen women), as well as some invited foreign trainees. The school has a rigorous three-round competitive selection process, with only two percent to three percent of applicants gaining admittance.[1] A stage directing program was launched in 2001.
