Hi, I'm Miko Khan. I'm an actor.
I come from a multi-ethnic background. My personal brand is intelligent and feisty with a deeper weight and vulnerability underneath. I have natural comic instincts and love to portray big comedic characters and have the classical training to bring to life complex dramatic characters as well. My favorite roles that I've performed are Lady Macbeth under the direction of Jacquie Crago, and improvised roles in a year-long run of the Heirs of Hogwarts, a fan fiction improv show about the next generation of Harry Potter characters.
In 2016, I graduated from Bristol Old Vic Theater School in the United Kingdom where I underwent intensive English classical conservatory training and earned my MFA in Acting. Now I'm Back in NYC acting and performing myself as much as possibly I can and privately coaching other actors in Manhattan.
I've also worked as a voice artist, dancer, writer, and teacher. My artistic journey began as a dancer when I was 3 wee years old and I've been hooked ever since. In high school, I trained at the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet under the Artistic Direction of Marcia Dale Weary in classical ballet and modern dance. I then moved to New York City and continued to train with the Tony-award winning Broadway producer, Rose Caiola's Manhattan Youth Ballet before dancing with Dance Theater of Harlem under the Artistic Direction of Arthur Mitchell. I then continued dancing at Barnard College, Columbia University while earning my bachelor's in Psychology and where I also began to explore acting. At Barnard, I performed in an ensemble adaptation of Don Delilo's EndZone directed by David Neumann. Next, I moved to Denver, Colorado, where I became a regular house player at the Bovine Metropolis Theater and the VooDoo Comedy Playhouse performing in shows such as the Improv Hootenanny, Fringe, PrimeTime, a year-long run of The Heirs of Hogwarts: An Improvised Adventure, Denver's Next Improv Star Season 5, and The Duel. In 2013, I returned to dancing with Takarabune, a traditional Japanese and modern dance fusion company based in Tokyo, Japan. From there I backpacked around East and Southeast Asia and Polynesia for 7 months exploring their various performing arts. It was on this journey that I resolved I must live a life devoted to the arts. I was eager to get back to the US to continue performing improv, scripted theater, commercial and film work, and teaching theater and dance. After my return, I performed as Beaty in John Guare's Lydie Breeze at Visionbox Studios under the direction of Jennifer McCray Rincon, as Stephanie in Neil LaBute's Reasons to be Pretty with Benjy Dobrin Studio's and as Ramona in Tony Garcia's original musical Chicano's Sing the Blues at Su Teatro. Meanwhile, I also started my business
Khan Arts Education in 2013, teaching acting and dance to students preK-12 from across the socioeconomic spectrum, working with schools, theatre companies, and businesses in multiple cities across Colorado.
