What do you want to start with?


Why should I pursue a full time acting program?
» There is no substitute for technique, and it takes time to develop it. Many aspiring actors crash and burn early on in the dog-eat-dog world of film and TV without a solid foundational training.

Why study at VAD Arts?
» We offer exceptional one-year foundational training. Our faculty is aligned in its approach to complete actor training.

Do you accept international students?
» Yes. The Academy is a Designated Learning Institution.

I don’t have much acting experience. Should I still apply?

» Want it. Be yourself.
