Dramatic Arts Program
Our Dramatic Arts Program (DAP) is a very emotional and intense six month full-time course. Its purpose is to give students a solid foundation of acting principals. It is designed to challenge actors to achieve their highest potential. Tools learned range from script analysis, character research, audition skills and scene work to improvisation, voice, movement/body, and on-camera techniques which will all be needed for your demo reel project.

This course exceeded my expectations! I loved the feedback, variety and fast pace!
Oct 2014 ~ My experience at VADA has been truly wonderful. I recently took the Two Week Intensive in Oct ’14 and the teachers are extremely professional, and knowledgeable, they promote a safe place to grow and learn, and do not b.s. you about the hard work and dedication needed to pursue this path. This is an amazing community of passionate people who care about both their work and the development of their students. All of the teachers are actively working in the industry which allows you to get a good sense of what is involved and what is required of you. The people attending this school are equally amazing and you are continuously surrounded by dedicated and inspiring individuals. I would not hesitate at all to recommend this school to anyone. Amazing place!
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.
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.
