Acting and Improv in San Miguel

The most fun you can have with your clothes on!

aActing, Improv, Stand Up Comedy Classes:         Explore, expand, laugh, learn, grow!

My name is Eli Hans. I'm an actor-director living in San Miguel de Allende. One of the most FUN and fulfilling activities in my professional development was taking acting classes at various stages of life.

Here are some of the reasons why, beyond actual acting techniques:

  • tremendous positive personal growth
  • increased self-esteem
  • expanded imagination
  • more authentic rapport with others
  • deeper connection with my body
  • develop new friendships
  • laugh, laugh and laugh!

I've taught acting for many years, and regardless of age or skill level, everyone comes away with an expanded sense of self and creativity.

WHAT WILL THE CLASS COVER?

Every session is different. Yet, most acting classes involve Theater Games, which are a lot of fun and incredibly empowering. Once we get over our fear of appearing foolish, the sky's the limit! An environment of safety and support is created to facilitate this process.

You will learn many aspects of performance: Class may include monologues, scene work, staged reading, improvisation, cold reading, vocalization and diction, pantomime, physicality... even stage combat, stand-up comedy and musical theater!      Here is some of what you'll learn: 

  • how to create authentic, compelling characters
  • stage directions and blocking (positioning of actors on stage)
  • when and how to move on stage with confidence
  • the secret to making monologues and performances more dynamic
  • how to create a back-story to make your characters ring true
  • different acting methods used by professionals
  • how to give the best performance possible, no matter what!

WHERE DO WE MEET?               

Classes and rehearsals take place in our wonderful theater The Studio Space near centro, close to El Caracol condos. Just above the intersection of Cinco de Mayo and Prolongacion Aldama. Address is provided to enrolled students.

WILL WE GET TO PERFORM?

But of course! You will always perform for other students in class, that is a given. Periodically, we present a STUDENT SHOWCASE performed for an audience. On some occasions we perform in public venues like Open Mic, in special theatrical events, and in local theater venues like the Teatro Santa Ana and The San Miguel Theater Company stage.

The Studio Space Theater, our intimate venue where classes take place.
