GRADA is the GOTAFE Regional Academy of Dramatic Arts. It is based at Benalla's GOTAFE Campus in Samaria Road, next door to BPACC. GRADA offers Certificate and Diploma level courses in Theatre Arts and Dance.

The Benalla campus of GOTAFE, where GRADA is located, is a small, friendly community of staff and students.GRADA class groups are deliberately kept small to ensure students have individual time with teachers.

GRADA's primary role is to audition, select and train students at a tertiary level, preparing them for careers and further training in the theatre and beyond.

All courses are taught with a commitment to learning, a belief in the individual and a vision for the future. BPACC proudly hosts and supports GRADA students and staff as a venue for regular training and innovative theatrical productions. 

GRADA teachers are industry professionals with extensive experience and an active involvement in the industry. Students are provided with hands-on experience in all levels of performance. They will also have access to some of the best facilities in regional Victoria in which to learn and perform.

GRADA graduates have gone on to work professionally, study at the VCA, Charles Sturt University and Swinburne as well as the Vancouver Film School.
