AADA is the home of young and emerging theatre artists who are passionate about acting, creating and producing their own work.

Building on a 25-year reputation as an independent theatre school in Sydney, AADA is now a department of the Australian Institute of Music (AIM). AIM is a Higher Education Provider with over 40 years experience in music education.

The Bachelor of Performance degree is AADA’s new undergraduate theatre course providing unique professional training in contemporary theatre performance. It nurtures the talent, technique and temperament of the actor, the creator, and the producer, making it unique amongst acting schools and drama schools in Australia.

A vital alternative to mainstream acting courses, each student in the program is given maximum opportunity to acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes in the full suite of theatre arts. These range from acting to design, from dramaturgy to marketing.

At AADA we seek to nurture students’ individual creativity and artistic excellence; to instill professionalism and determination; to facilitate creative exploration and innovation; and to engage with current artistic debate. We encourage students to challenge the imagination in ways that are unique to live performance; to create works in contemporary and traditional theatre spaces; and to engage with the full breadth and diversity of human experience and expression.
