Youth Academy of Dramatic Arts
YADA® (Youth Academy of Dramatic Arts) has been offering comprehensive theatrical training to youth in Los Angeles for 12 years. Located in the historic Dupree Dance building at W. 3rd St. and Crescent Heights Blvd., YADA offers a safe and exciting environment in which students can learn, grow, and enrich their lives while practicing the skills of theatrical performance. Classes are delineated based on age (5-17 yrs) and ability (Primary-Master & Company). And each class culminates in an unforgettable performance in YADA’s own 99 seat theatre. Designers, directors, choreographers, musical directors, stage managers and running crew are all on staff to facilitate the best performance experience for youth in Los Angeles. Private coaching is also available in voice, acting, and dance. And for those who wish to work behind the scenes, YADA also offers stagecraft internships.
