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.
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!
If you're interested in acting or looking for a fun, interesting hobby, you should definitely try Cooper Screen Academy! Such a great experience led by a lovely, talented teacher! Sara Cooper is doing some amazing things for the Tasmanian film industry and its actors. Get involved!
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.
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
CSA is honestly the best thing to have happened to me. Acting has always been my passion and dream and I've always wanted to make a career out of it. CSA helped put my plans into action. Sara is so inspirational, her world of knowledge, experience and amazing teaching techniques motivated me, helped me believe in myself, pushed my acting to places I didnt know I could go and opened me up to a world of opportunity. Each class was so fullfilling. They are fun and motivating, and I never walked away from a class without learning something new. I feel so much more confident in front of a camera and with my acting technique. If acting is something you are serious about then CSA is the place to be!
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!
It's just the best...! CSA has been the perfect outlet for my 8 year old to embrace his creative side and excentric ways. The teachers are brilliant, and I hope to put all my three kids through CSA to develop their confidence, public speaking skills etc. We are so glad we found Sara and co at CSA last year!
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.
