  2. Current CSA Students in the Elite Program to come and get extra instruction time, at no additional cost!
  3. Any actors who are kids in Kindergarten thru 8th grade - who would like to attend a drop-in acting class. Beginners and experienced actors  can each work at their respective levels. You will have fun flexing your acting muscles in a fun, fast-paced class, with no commitment required.
