The CSA Elite Program

A Comprehensive Acting Training Program
for Serious Young Actors (Ages 4 to 25).

High Schoolers can earn credit for the Elite Program!

The Elite Program at CSA is a major commitment (1 year minimum). If you are serious about acting and ready to take it to the next level, and looking for a program that provides not only acting classes, but also tools, support, and opportunities for your acting development, then you'll want to Try a Workshop, and Audition for our Elite Program.

In Level 1 you will study:
+ Acting Theory from Stanislavski to Hagen
+ Breaking Down and Performing Scenes
+ Selecting, Breaking Down, Preparing & Performing Monologues
+ Audition & Interview Technique, Cold Reading, and 'About Me' Spiel

How to act in Film, Televsion, and Commercials

You will emerge from Level 1 with professional headshots, a formidable web presence, the ability to find your own auditions and performance opportunities, performance-ready audition monologues (dramatic and comedic), an understanding of the business, an organized and scientific approach to your auditions and networking, at least 12 auditions under your belt, and at least 2 shows on your resume, and much more!

In Level 2, you will go on to study Sitcom Acting, Creating a Unique and Marketable Character, Improvisation, and more in-depth Acting Technique. Level 3 delves into writing and production, and Level 4 builds on all of that plus a focus on marketing. Students age 13 and up are eligible to advance through Levels 2, 3, and 4. Younger students can move into an advanced class in the Elite Program after two semesters.

Our acting classes meet year-round, and everything we do in class culminates in a performance and learning opportunity with Guest Industry Professionals. Fall Semester features a local Advertising Industry Showcase and a Denverwood Event, where students perform for and learn from top Hollywood figures such as agents and casting directors. Spring Semester includes our Theatre Industry Showcase and another Denverwood Event. Summer session is all production: all our Elite Program students act in theatrical productions that are performed on-stage for live audiences. In August, our actors get to perform for their peers, family, and friends at our red carpet event, the Ada Awards Ceremony, where they get recognized for the work they have done over the past year.
