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 then Audition for our Elite Program.

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

How to Act in a Variety of Circumstances

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 Comedy Structure, Sitcom Acting, Creating a Unique and Marketable Character, Improvisation, and more in-depth Acting Technique.

Level 3 delves into Dramatic Acting (especially for film) as well as Writing. After Level 3, students can audition into our performance troupe, CSA Company.

In Company, you will build on all of the above, plus focus on marketing and acting opportunities. Students age 13 and up are eligible to advance through Levels 2 and 3, and into CSA Company. Students 12 & under can move into an Advanced Youth 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. Our Elite Program is All-Inclusive!
