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 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.

Sara is changing the face of acting in Tasmania. The opportunities and knowledge she is offering young performers is greater than they will appreciate for many years - until they look back and realise the incredible gift she has shared.

Any budding young actors holding back and waiting for something to happen ? Why don't you take your career and passion into your own hands or the hands of the wonderful Sara Cooper and Cooper Screen Academy! Honestly the best acting course I have ever done ! Sara is an amazing teacher with so much knowledge of the industry and screen acting. Not only that, but she is helping put Tasmanian actors on the Australian film and television map.

Sophie Chandler – CSA student

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
