NYSTI now located in Troy (used to be part of the EGG in the Empire State Plaza) is a great program for those that can afford it. The education provided on theater and acting is amazing. They offer several sessions through out the year. They have internships for high school students as well. They perform many shows through out the school year for local schools as part of the arts in education programs - these shows are extremely well done. They are entertaining and amusing. If a family can afford it and your child is into the arts this is the place to go!
