Welcome to the Dublin Central School of Acting

DCSA was founded by casting director Gillian Reynolds to help people pursue their dream of a film and television acting career.

Dublin Central School of Acting provides a creative space where people who are new to the Industry can learn the craft of Film and TV acting, working with trained and experienced professionals.

Our next available Get into Film & TV Acting all day Saturday course for Newcomers was due to start starts on April 18th. However due to Covid-19 this course is postponed until September.

We are currently offering an online course covering the modules outlined on the all day Saturday course.

The School  also provides specialised courses for professional actors who are interested in brushing up on their film acting skills with guest tutors- our last one was Patrick Bergin. So keep an eye out.

In July we run workshops for Teens-13-17 who are keen on Film Acting & Directing.
