The global pandemic of COVID-19 has brought tumultuous changes for all of us in ways that few could have imagined. For the safety of our students, faculty, and staff, BADA decided two weeks ago to suspend in-person instruction for the remainder of the semester and send our spring students home.

With everyone safely settled, the London Theatre Program is once again in full swing and our students are completing their final module online, working closely with the directors, faculty, and Dean. The first week of online instruction has just finished and we are immensely proud of how our students, directors, and voice and dramaturgy faculty have all pulled together to continue to make their BADA experience a rewarding one. While there are challenges to this new way of learning, we are excited to see our faculty and students already discovering new opportunities for creativity and expression.

BADA’s strength is our community and its collaborative celebration of rigorous training. As we continue our preparation for the resumption of on-site teaching, we know that both of these strengths will not only sustain us, but will also allow us to be creative together in new ways and to reach out and connect across physical distance. Over the next few weeks, we will be rolling out exciting new initiatives to connect and celebrate our community in these challenging times. Please keep an eye on our social media and blog for details.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
