21 MayAs someone who trains actors everyday I see a very common mistake. No sacrifice. These people feel they can come in, take a few classes and become an actor. Most of the time, they fail, but not because of lack of oppo... 16 AprOut of all the training you could possibly endure, through all the scene study, dialect classes, movement and so on, there is one key element that cannot be taught; confidence.

Sept 2014 ~ I’ve only recently started at VADA doing the 6 month full-time program but I already am in love with it! I wasn’t too sure what to expect but I can easily say that it has gone far beyond anything I could have imagined. What I love most about it are the teachers! Simon (the owner) has an extremely talented and professional group of instructors who are all current actors in the industry today. As a result, they are able to bring the knowledge from what they’ve done and give us real, hands-on experience with the various techniques in improv, auditioning, script analysis, voice and speech, movement, as well as the business side of acting. It is a very safe environment. The instructors and the classmates are extremely supportive of one another and encourage each person to give as much as they possibly can when performing. They help you to build confidence and lessen self-judgment. The classroom is always full of energy and excitement. It definitely is a lot of hard work too! You start to explore and discover emotions that you never really knew about before and you learn how to use that emotion to make you an even better performer, both on stage and off.
In my dealings with Simon, I have always found him to be extremely professional, enthusiastic and hardworking. I have always been very impressed with the caliber of his students.

I have been a guest Casting Director at several of VADA’s Showcases. VADA’s students have been TOP choices for roles in productions I have cast. I am confident in recommending VADA as a place for serious actors to train.

Oct 2014 ~ I took the Intro to Acting classes as a new actress and it went above and beyond what I had expected. I now am still taking the On Camera Audition classes, taught by Crystal Lowe, which have pushed me to extend myself beyond my comfort zone. No doubt, the staff and programs will continue to be part of my future career success.
May 2014 ~ Vada is really great with exposing performers to the industry by having workshops and showcases and having casting directors and agents come and see their work. The free workshops are a wonderful opportunity for financially struggling actors to meet the teachers and decide which classes are right for them! They are also very inclusive and highly motivational workshops. Both students and faculty are very friendly and the atmosphere is quite supportive overall!!
