Training for leisure-time Animators

The training offered by STAGEMAN provides the best opportunity to start a new career and to learn the necessary practical skills. If you want to learn how to run mini disco dances, games, fun activities and shows together with everything you need to know about being an animator, then come and enjoy the only practical training in central Europe, prepared by the specialist in this field.

This training has been specially devised to teach you all the information and skills that you will need to become a successful animator. This isn't an easy profession – it requires a lot of skills and energy. This isn't an easy profession – it requires both skills and energy. The good news is – we can teach you the skills – you provide the energy.

In addition to the training you will also receive ready-made programmes for animation activities which you can use everywhere as often as you like. This training is very real, hands-on, practical training. We avoid theory and get you 'doing' right from the start. You will be perfectly equipped to use these ideas in real situations. You will learn through taking part in games, shows and fun activities, and you will develop the knowledge and confidence to become a professional animator.
