The British American Drama Academy (BADA) was founded in 1983 to enable students from around the world to study classical theatre with leading actors and directors of the British theatre. It is considered as one of the best drama schools in London. Founded by Anthony Branch based upon an idea he developed whilst living in La Jolla, California in 1982. The BADA was to bring the best British directors and teachers together with young actors of great promise in North America and from elsewhere. Working initially from his apartment in La Jolla, Anthony enlisted volunteers (including James Pearson, Robert Zimmerman, and many others) to help organize the first class for the first summer program planned to be in Santa Fe, New Mexico ["Founding of the BADA", Interviews by S. Washington, Masters Thesis, Yale University, 1998]. Anthony's talent, foresight, and network built from there a vibrant program that today serves the needs of hundreds, and includes a startling number of successful actors amongst its alumni and alumnae.
Students have included:
Teachers have included: Ben Kingsley, Judi Dench, Rosemary Harris, Juliet Stevenson, Simon McBurney, John Barton, Brian Cox, Dorothy Tutin and Jeremy Irons.
