The Company

BAM is a theatre company first. We teach and coach, acting. BAM is also a cultural strategy company, and has hosted numerous culture conscious events in the Caribbean, most notably our Celebrity Workshops and The Dream Project.


Who We Are

The Bahamas Artist Movement operates the BAM Drama Studio; a professional training program that provides students with the skills and techniques necessary to pursue a career in acting and the performing arts industries. This training prepares students to enter directly into professional careers in stage, film, and television or as students at the university level.

The Drama Studio emphasizes career preparation through courses in Acting, Voice and Diction, Theater History and Criticism, Physical Techniques and Dance. This program is the only one of it’s kind in the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. We prepare students for African, Asian, American, Canadian and European markets as the creative and cultural industries develop in the Bahamas.


What We Do

We do community!  BAM believes in the power of art and as such we go into communities to address social issues through performance art. At the forefront of our social agenda are the fundamental rights and issues facing women and children locally and globally.
