Coset methods are used to construct the action describing the dynamics of the (massive) Nambu-Goldstone scalar degree of freedom associated with the spontaneous breaking of the isometry group of AdSd+1 space to that of an AdSd subspace. The resulting action is an SO (2,d) invariant AdS generalization of the Nambu-Goto action. The vector field theory equivalent action is also determined.
