WE ARE STILL OPEN. However, in the interests of protecting our community:

– the office and studios at Leir House are temporarily closed;
– all private lessons are now being conducted online. Your instructor will be in touch with you with details; and
– scholarship auditions may still run in a form yet to be decided. We will update this page when we know more.

If you have any questions, please email

We hope you are all well. We miss you and can’t wait to see everyone soon.

Welcome to the Penticton Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts!

We believe the arts are essential to the human spirit.

We believe that studying the arts and nurturing artistic expression:

  • Sparks curiosity, innovation and creative problem solving;
  • Encourages interpretation, reflection and collaboration;
  • Builds self-awareness and self-confidence;
  • Contributes to a healthy, vibrant community; and
  • Fosters deep emotional connections that inspire greater insight, understanding and a sense of belonging.

Our Mission
To educate, mentor and inspire students to achieve their full potential within a fun and enriching environment that promotes excellence, leadership and a life-long love of the arts.
