Colorado School of Acting

This Colorado acting school located in Lakewood offers an acting training program for all ages, focused on the recorded performing arts (anything on camera or microphone). It is a serious program for students who seek a career in acting; it is not a casual program where students take acting classes for fun. Colorado School of Acting students range from preschoolers to retirees, from completely new to acting, to those who have appeared in over 20 films. We welcome all who are serious about building a career in today’s entertainment industry.

Performance Opportunities: Beginning in Level 1, students work on camera, shooting scenes like independent films. The opportunities increase from there, including live performances during Level 2’s Improv Class, and culminating in being the cast of a locally produced and aired TV show during Level 4.

Career Preparation: Students who complete Level 1 (a one-year-long course) will have the following career tools:

-Professional Headshot & Resume

Before I started at Colorado School of Acting, I was kind of a beginner. But now I audition for Hollywood movies and local projects.
