Elia K. Schneider is a firm believer in the Stella Adler technique. Schneider’s passion is to carry on the valuable and timeless knowledge that Adler taught once before.

Schneider offers her prestigious Spanish course Fundamentos Del Arte Escénico Técnica Adler once a year in the Stella Adler Academy of Acting and Theater in Los Angeles; where she is also a Faculty Member.

Schneider has provided more than 100 workshops in her lifetime. A great number of Schneider’s students experience a very positive transformation since the experience of the workshop leaves them with a deep impression, and fundamental changes in the way of seeing reality.

All types of students attend Elia’s workshops, from those with a certain trajectory and acting experience, to those who have never had an acting experience and are engaged in different activities whether they be related to the art or not.

What is the course about:

Schneider analyzes and discusses the teachings of Stella Adler and addresses the work of the actor in the theatrical play, as well as what it promotes in the actor as a human being.

The workshop includes two sections, the theoretical part where the foundations of the Adler technique are studied based on the deep analysis and interpretation of the text, as well as the use of the actor’s imagination that allows them to connect emotionally with the character truth. Through the practice part of the workshop the student actor applies the knowledge obtained.

Throughout her years of experience as a teacher and her work directing actors, she has developed a very special and unique technique through which her students can understand the importance of the search for the truth on stage. Students will explore plays from classical authors such as Chekhov, Ibsen, and Strindberg.

Course length: 5 weeks

For Stella Adler being a better actor is synonymous with being a better human being. The power of this premise is manifested both in the classes and in rehearsals. Continuously reinforcing the complete dedication to the work, the respect and collaboration with the other students.

No matter the age, occupation, health condition, social condition or disability, the workshop is never denied to anyone. However, class size is limited with the intention of dedicating the time and attention necessary to the students. In each workshop Schneider grants a scholarship to one or more aspiring students who cannot afford the cost of the workshop.
