YADA really brings the magic out that kids have inside them. Theatre in general is so wonderful for kids learning how to present themselves onstage. At YADA they get to perform with their friends and be silly and have fun. My daughter just loves it. It is a truly magical place with the best teachers in town. Truly. I LOVE IT. My daughter Stella loves it. The productions are top notch. It is just so heart warming that a place like this exists in Los Angeles - Molly Shannon #YADA #Singing #Drama #CreativeArts #SummerCamp #DramaticArts #Kids #Fun #PerformingArts #DramaStudent #Musicals #YadaRocks
