CDA is a boutique agency founded in 1978 by Caroline Dawson.
Belinda Wright who now heads up the agency, joined Caroline in 1981 as a secretary, shared with the legendary Peter Crouch, to pursue a career which would fulfil her passion for the theatre.
In 1984 vacating their Frith Street office to move to Sloane Square, Belinda became a partner. Based in the Kensington area ever since, CDA grew and thrived… Caroline passed away in 2007 but her name lives on… we still represent many of the clients who were with us in the early days. CDA prides itself on maintaining a small select list and providing individual attention and support.
Having worked in several industries, Laura joined the CDA family in 1997. Initially she came in as an assistant to Caroline and Belinda, then as a junior agent.
After 22 years she is starting to think this may be her vocation.
Kelly started her career in the theatrical world with an internship at an agency one summer long ago and quickly realised this was something she wanted to pursue.
In 2010 she started working in an agency full time and arrived at CDA in 2012, where she has been happily homed ever since.
Kelly assists the CDA office – from self-tapes, coordinating ADR to invoicing… plus everything in-between.
Noura started her career in the ‘industry’ as a casting assistant for Shaheen Baig, the legendary Marilyn Johnson, Suzanne Crowley & Gilly Poole. After 5 years in casting she decided to take a step into the dance world and worked at Rambert for two years. After training as a finance assistant she decided it was time to move on and joined CDA in 2018. She is now primarily responsible for coordinating the payroll but also helps with any administration.
