Where Do I Belong?
YADA programs are offered all year round including 10 week musical theatre classes during the school year, camps during the summer and retreats offered during spring and winter breaks. And offered for each class, camp and retreat is training for every age group, starting with the youngest age group (YADA TOTS) and ranging all the way up to teenager; audition only classes geared for the serious performers.
Which Class Should I Sign Up For?
YADA offers classes for students ranging in ages of 3 - 18 years. YADA offers programs that challenge yet encourage students no matter which age group they are in.
In some cases students fall into an age range where they can choose between two classes. This was designed into YADA's program to cater to the specific developmental level of each child and performance experience.

When Does My Child Advance?
YADA offers classes for students ranging in ages of 3 - 18 years.
Initially students are placed into a class based on their age and their specific developmental level and performance maturity. As the student progresses in YADA, classes, camps and retreats they graduate to the next level.
There are only two levels that require an audition before the student is admitted. Jr. Master and Master. To qualify for these levels a student must schedule their audition with YADA administrative staff here.
