Liv Boughn, Professional Hollywood Actress and Teacher, will be teaching acting classes at the Santa Barbara Theater in Puerto Vallarta. These special classes will be presented in English on Mondays/Wednesdays y en español Martes y Jueves, beginning the week of November 17, 2008.
 
Boughn graduated with honors from the B.F.A. Theatre Program at the University of Southern California. She began her modeling and acting career at a very young age and has been working internationally for 20 years. Boughn has been featured in hundreds of print and commercial campaigns, and has performed in over 35 stage productions. Additionally, she has been featured as a guest star on television shows such as "Charmed" and has appeared in magazines such as "Young and Modern" (YM). One of her career highlights thus far was representing the U.S. in the 1998 International Children’s Theatre Festival in Croatia.
 
In addition to her acting and modeling, Boughn taught and coached performing arts & self-development for over twelve years in the Los Angeles area. One of her specialties is coaching actors and models on the "bizness" of the business, where she helps them learn the “how to” of the industry including how to: audition, get agents, and ultimately turn their talents into viable careers. Most recently she taught acting at Colegio Americano in Puerto Vallarta where her directing credits over the last three years include: "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown;" "Beauty Is a Beast;" "Holka Polka, a Fairy tale Mystery;" and for teens, "Love, Death, and the Prom," which she will be bringing to the professional stage of the Santa Barbara Theater in the upcoming months. Boughn is thrilled to bring her acting program to the Santa Barbara where her students will benefit from being in a professional theater setting.
 
¨Improved self-confidence¨ and ¨better eye contact¨ are some of the more frequent comments given by her students and parents. Boughn´s curriculum is currently focused on theatre games/sports, improvisation, comedy, character work, scene study, monologues, and of course, plays. Other themes include: teamwork, articulation, and self-expression.
