The Juilliard School’s Drama division scores the top spot for Explore Talent’s list of the top drama schools for 2014.

The school also boasts of being the center for world-class talent not only for acting, but also for music and dance.
Coming to a close second on their list is Yale School of Drama where actresses Meryl Streep and Sigourney Weaver made use of their numerous student productions as a place for perfecting their own brand of acting. London’s own Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) finished in closely at the third spot while New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts took the fourth spot.
The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London, home to actors Ralph Fiennes and Anthony Hopkins, garnered a top spot in the list where they landed on the fifth spot. RADA has one of the best facilities for performing arts in the UK. US’s oldest institution for drama, Carnegie Mellon University followed RADA closely on the sixth spot.
