If you're looking to learn the ups and downs of a film set, screen acting technique and a truckload of industry know-how, then CSA is the place to be.
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.
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.
I was so nervous and unsure of myself before attending CSA. I had no idea if I could even act, all I knew is that I wanted to. Maeve and Sara have helped me turn that passion into a skill set and after a whole term of their constant support and direction, I have gained so much, learnt more than I even knew I needed to and I have had the time of my life doing it.
My twins, Isaac and Mitchell started 2 terms ago and are having a ball! Quite apart from 'learning the trade' they have developed confidence and are losing their fear of 'what everyone thinks'. It has been a great maturing process for them. As a mum I find dealing with Sara Cooper excellent and she has an amazing commitment to the youth. The boys have already been in a commercial and just shot their first short length film Rosedale. They are looking forward to lots more fun and learning!
What Sara has done for the Tasmanian industry is truly fantastic. We were being left behind, which is crazy as we have such wealth of raw, passionate talent. I am so proud to work with this woman and help her share Tasmania's talent with the world. Tassie’s time has come to shine.
Sara and the CSA team have earned every star in my 5 star rating. To see my daughter so happy after every class is a testament to her teacher. The kindness shown to us by Sara is heart warming. This kindness filters through both the staff and children who attend classes. Such a passionate team with such big hearts. We love CSA!!!
Sara Cooper is fully dedicated to running an excellent drama school. She puts in 110% behind the scenes, and every student matters. I enrolled my (shy) daughter a few years ago to boost her confidence - she is still a shy person... But last year she sang in front of the whole school; confidently played two different lead roles in two casts of her School Shakespeare play. Thank you Sara
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!
