A Virtual Term Start

In its 53 year history, Monday 20th April will be a very different term start for Midlands Academy of Dance and Drama as we move the College online allowing us to continue to deliver on our commitment to all students training during this time.

Behind the scenes and based at home throughout the Easter ‘break’, our Principal, Creative Director, Senior Administrator, Management, Heads of Departments & Faculty have been working tirelessly to create an impressive virtual timetable to match the ethos and aims of the MADD College we all know and love. We would like to extend our thanks to all the staff who have worked with us to develop a comprehensive e-learning environment and to those who will help us to deliver it until College is able to resume as normal and teaching can take place in person and face-to-face.
