How to Get Here

NCDA is located in the heart of Georgetown, on Wisconsin Avenue between P Street and Q Street NW. NCDA occupies the basement floor of the Georgetown Lutheran Church, the large stone building between these two streets.


To reach the entrance, walk briefly west on Volta Place NW (a small side street between P and Q Streets) and look for the large “National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts” sign (pictured on this page) behind a black, cast-iron fence. Once you see the sign, follow the walkway until the second staircase to your right. The stairs lead down to a small outdoor courtyard and our front door.​


NCDA is accessible by public transportation. There are three Metro stops within a 15 to 25 minute walk of our studio. (Even closer if you take Metrobus.) The closest stops are:

  • Dupont Circle on the Red Line
  • Farragut West on the Blue/Orange/Silver Lines
  • Rosslyn on the Blue/Orange Lines
