At PAMDA, we remain committed to ensuring that we do our part to help reduce transmission of the coronavirus. As we slowly resume face-to-face lessons, our risk of exposure increases, so it is imperative that we all take certain precautions to protect all of us.

Following guidelines provided by WorkSafeBC, we have produced our COVID-19 Safety Plan. Our plan includes rules and guidelines that must be adhered to by all staff, students, faculty, board members, visitors, volunteers, and other members of our PAMDA community.

Please read the COVID-19 Safety Plan PAMDA Guidelines for All Visitors carefully, as some of the ways we have interacted in the past have now changed.

We’ll announce when we’re ready for Fall registrations. But if you can’t wait until then, some of our faculty are offering private lessons over the summer. Check with your instructor and then REGISTER HERE.

In the meantime: Keep calm. Keep safe. Keep playing.

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.
