New York City campus

SOCAPA New York City is centered around two neighboring campuses, one in downtown Manhattan at our Pace University campus in the South Street Seaport area, and the other in downtown Brooklyn at New York University’s Metrotech Campus. The campuses are connected by the Brooklyn Bridge, each is at its respective foot of the bridge, and students should expect to have classes, meetings, meals at either or.

SOCAPA New York City offers summer camps in Filmmaking, Acting, Dance, Photography and Music. Camps range in length from one to three weeks.


Most classes are held in Manhattan at our 140 William Street Performing Art Center, a brand new, seven-story, 47,200 square foot building dedicated solely to training in the performing arts at Pace University. The building houses studio classroom space, two blackbox performance spaces, four dance studios (including one large performance hall), a soundstage, screening rooms, digital design labs, and other multi-purpose training spaces.


Additional classes, screenings and final showcases are held at New York University's Metrotech Campus or at the nearby Kumble Performing Arts Center. Our Brooklyn facilities include the Pfizer Auditorium (300 Seats), the Kumble Theater (350 Seats), dance studios, screening rooms, a black box theater, digital design labs, a photography studio, two photography darkrooms and our main cafeteria.
