CHECK IT OUT

What an awesome family the Cooper Screen Academy is. It embodies everything you could hope for; positive, encouraging, engaging, fun and providing the expertise to develop and inspire all ages. Katie has always had an interest in drama and Sara and her proficient teachers have motivated her even more. Thank you for all the hard work you all put in, and all the benefits provided. Although I can't begin to imagine the amount of effort it takes, it is very much appreciated.

Lisa Clapham – CSA Parent

Cooper Screen Academy is so very valuable and beneficial for young budding actors. Sara is an incredible role model and with her experience and contacts is doing the crucial job of training and connecting Hobart to the rest of the Australian industry. I wish I had this opportunity before I left for NIDA.

Thank you Sara for your vision, passion and amazing energy behind Cooper Screen Academy. Also my heartfelt thank you to Danni for teaching my young son, James. He just loves your classes. James has High Functioning Autism. I believe your acting classes are helping him to read facial expressions and to interpret body language. James has been enrolled in Cooper Screen Academy for 18 months now. He has even recently been cast in his first television advertisement. WOW is all I can say!

Judith Richards – CSA Parent

Sara has not taught me to perform; she has taught me to breath, relax and take comfort in my own abilities.  From her I have not only learnt the craft of acting, but the magic of self belief.

Emalisa White – CSA student

It's not just for kids! I started at the beginning of last year after seeing how much my teenaged daughter was enjoying her classes. The teachers are extremely knowledgeable and skilled professionals and the curriculum is presented in such a fun a supportive way. Since joining Cooper Screen Academy, I've gained confidence, friendships and even opportunities for paid acting work! If I could award more than 5 stars, I would!

Sally Ellis – Adult student AND CSA Parent!

CSA helped me realise the possibilities of achieving a career in the film industry, even within Tasmania. Sara's skills and knowledge gave me the extra nudge to get me to where I am, plus connections and opportunities for the future.

Sara Moon – CSA student: Accepted into The Academy of the Science of Acting and Directing, London

You'd think, being over 60, that I'd stick out like a sore thumb among the young adults at CSA: but never once did I feel out of place. Sara has the ability to make everyone feel welcome, provides opportunities for all ages to get involved, and is constant in encouragement and enthusiasm. Does that sound over the top? Nope - inspiring. #Iwanttobelikeher

Deidre McMaster – Adult student

Enrolling with Cooper Screen Academy has been by far the best thing my daughter has ever been involved in. Her class day is her most favourite day of the week, and loves every second of her time there. It is made so worth while just to see the smile on her face and to watch her confidence grow so much. Thank you to one and all for everything you do!

Amy Farrell – CSA Parent

I have watched Cooper Screen Academy grow over the years and have been so impressed by the commitment of Sara and her team. They have been very encouraging and supportive of my daughter who has pushed through her comfort zone which has enable her to accept roles in opportunities as a direct result of Sara's fantastic network in the industry. I highly recommend this wonderful Academy for anyone who wants to learn and grow in this industry.
