SANS Group

Artist Development Studio


SANS Group is both a studio and a culture. We provide a safe place where artists can explore and hone their craft.

SANS Group is an Artist Development Studio primarily for actors and dancers, founded in 2015 in Johannesburg by Hungani Ndlovu. We started the studio by hosting drop-in acting and dance classes on Saturday mornings and gradually grew into our acting courses, dance workshops and more.

We bring opportunity for people in the entertainment industry to hone their craft via open/private classes, workshops and short intensive courses. Our vision and mission is to cultivate a culture of learning within the South African entertainment industry. We believe this will help to inspire and grow our industry. 

SANS stands for: 

- Strong

- Attitudes

- Success

Our company values:

- Humility

- Trust

- Recognition

- Honour
