Canberra Academy of Dramatic Art (RTO 40859) is the ACT’s only institution offering accredited actor training programs from Certificate IV to Advanced Diploma level. Our mission is to build a generation of performers through a sense of self and story. Self, because we believe in building confidence and skills which contribute to the whole person. Story, because all performers are story-tellers — and by telling stories, they become culture-makers and culture-changers.

Students can study at our national centre in Canberra, or train with one of our partners — Nate Butler’s Studio in NSW and Drama Works Performing Arts Academy in Queensland.

CADA is an award-winning organisation, having won the Canberra Business Point awards in 2011 and 2012, and its director, Elizabeth Avery Scott, being a finalist in the Telstra Businesswoman’s Awards in 2013.

Our trainers are actors, directors, writers, producers, singers and dancers all active in the industry. For trainers in any given semester, please see our website.
