Because of the spread of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in New York City, AMDA has taken the following protective ways to prevent COVID-19 spreading on campus: “Starting Friday, March 13th, we will be suspending classes, rehearsals, and performances. Soon, AMDA will be moving all remote learning classes to the Google Classroom platform starting March 23rd.”

 

AMDA students pay a lot for their education. This is justified due to the accessibility they have to certain facilities and the training that is available to them. Because of COVID-19, we are no longer able to have these things. It is unfair to have us continue to pay the full tuition without being able to use what it is that we pay for. We understand that the school is doing this to protect students, and we are thankful for everything AMDA has done or us, especially for international student groups. AMDA is a community without racism, we stand together. However, all the teaching goals of AMDA cannot be achieved only through online teaching. The tools for students to complete their homework largely depends on school facilities and workshops that are not available at home. These are facilities and machines that we have paid thousands of dollars to access to further our education. Faculty and staff have been working tirelessly to find other ways to teach their courses, but many classes cannot be replaced entirely by online teaching.
