I took the full-time program at Vada. It was just amazing, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I’ve grown as an actress. Teachers are just great and super knowledgeable. My favourite part of the 6 month DAP was the Hollywood field trip!
My experience with the PDAM course so far is phenomenal. Finishing up the 6 month program and now going directly into the post program has given me a great deal of confidence in my acting and auditioning ability.

July 2014 ~ I was told by some crew about VADA. . So I took their two week intensive course. It was awesome! All the teachers were wonderful and share their knowledge. I was encouraged and did some acting that I never knew I could. I received great direction. I liked it so much that I am coming back for more courses! I feel very confident that through this school . . I will become by best.
This was an amazing experience! I feel like I have learned so much and I loved that we were able to work with a variety of instructors. This has completely changed my life. I feel like I’ve grown so much in the last two weeks. Thank you VADA!
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!!
Sept 2014 ~ I chose VADA because I am interested in the professional world of film and television acting. VADA combines excellence in professional training with experienced teachers who are also working professionals who understand the business as it really is. Classes are packed with relevant information that students of any background can use to get started or further their career in entertainment. The staff are all friendly and classes are small enough to develop a personal working relationship between teacher and student. VADA is located in the heart of downtown Vancouver near job opportunities, and students are encouraged to seek real work experience while attending VADA. VADA combines theory and practice to give students the best opportunity for success during their studies.
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.
