Being on the course at DSA has prepared me thoroughly for the next level of training. My time here has been insightful, challenging and has pushed my boundaries to the limit which has strengthened my physical and mental attitude toward a career in acting. The teaching staff are knowledgeable, thorough and the specific attention you receive is personal and they create a safe environment to discover and explore. The wide range of experiences and opportunities that have been offered have has been a massive highlight. The things I have learnt at DSA will stay with me for the rest of my training and beyond and I can’t thank everyone enough.
