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.
“Vada has helped me gain the skills to be confident. Now I can follow my dream and work as an actor.”
In the dealings that I have had with Simon and VADA, there has always been an essence of professionalism. They set the standard to which all others look to attain. The talent that is produced by VADA is easily comparable to talent located outside of Canada. I often see talent that has trained at VADA compete for jobs in the American movie market. Training at this studio will only help your career.

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.
I just completed the TWI and it was such a great experience. VADA creates an environment that is super comfortable, with friendly and approachable teachers. The course covered a range of topics that were perfect to get a start in the acting industry.
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.
