    The Musical Theatre Program at the New York Film Academy is proud to announce that from October 6 – 13th one of our esteemed dance teachers, Chad Austin, is traveling to Seoul, Korea and to Tokyo, Japan! Starting in Korea and then after a few days going to Japan, Chad will visit numerous schools and arts academies to introduce interested young performers to the New York Film Academy programs. While there, he will offer acting and dance workshops, and view auditions from perspective students.

    Chad has traveled extensively, however, this is his first trip to Asia and he is very excited to have this opportunity. Consistently one of our most loved and most valued teachers, we are thrilled to be able to share his teaching and his talent with all those he will meet on this trip.

    If you come across Chad on his tour, you are in for a treat. He has high professional standards and teaches a challenging, rigorous class that is fueled by his huge heart and spiced with a wry sense of humor. We will miss him while he is gone, but we wish him all the best on his whirlwind trip – knowing he will represent the best of what our programs have to offer.

    Chad made his Metropolitan Opera Ballet debut, in 2008, in John Adams and Peter Sellars’ Grammy award-winning, Doctor Atomic. He has worked in over 10 different productions at the Met including Richard Eyer’s Carmen, Bartlett Sher’s Le Contes De Hoffman, Hansel and Gretel, Aida, La Traviata, and Stephen Wadworth’s Boris Gudinov. New York City and Regional productions include, Cinderella, Play About the Naked Guy, Cabaret, The Man Who Came to Dinner, and Street Scene.

    Chad teaches and choreographs around the world for companies including Ballet Arts, Hampton Ballet Theatre, Kiyone Ballet Brazil, and Arabesque Lebanon.
