Misty & The SandMan’s Stage Hypnosis Boot Camp will take place at three fairs in 2020.

August 6-9  one person will join Misty and Alan in San Jose, at The Santa Clara County Fair .

August 18-23 is the group Boot Camp in Centralia, WA at the Southwest Washington Fair.

September 11-20 will be in London, Ontario, Canada for two students at the Western Fair.

I am excited, these three classes will be the Boot Camps 11th, 12th and 13th incarnation.

Giving people the opportunity to work with us one-on-one has many advantages for some. Having a boot camp in Canada is also exciting, and this one is limited to two students only. An advantage to the one-on-one boot camps includes watching Misty and Alan perform multiple shows. You will also be able to do tag ins to our show if you need a slower progression into doing complete solo shows.

The group boot camp has all the advantages explained on other pages of this web site. Mostly, it is extremely empowering to work with people also working on their acts and it gives you a lot of permission to fail and struggle, because you won’t be struggling alone.

The big Group Boot Camp in Centralia, WA is really exciting because it is a six day fair with over 80,000 attendance.

These hypnosis boot camps are going to be EPIC!

The lodging, meals, and travel for the Boot Camps have not been arranged or confirmed as of yet. We will keep you posted by email, text and phone calls as things develop when you sign up.

Depending on which boot camp you attend will determine how may people will be with the group. One ~to~ seven students will attend the Southwest Washington Fair in Centralia, WA boot camp. We have room for a maximum of ten students at all three boot camps combined and we fully expect to sell out spaces early. Last years boot camps were all full.

If you arrive a day early, which I encourage, we go over basic sound reinforcement and video camera basics. This helps because these are things that need to be repeated over and over to get to know them well. If we get the basic instruction out of the way a day before we work on our shows, then it is one less thing I pile onto you while you are focusing on your scripts.

We all go to dinner together every night. Here we meet, mingle and go over notes of the day. Everyone gets to share their insights as well. It can be very gestalt. We find local restaurants that hopefully serve adult beverages and is open late where we pow-wow about how the day went. This builds camaraderie.

A day before the fair begins, we will walk through the Fairgrounds and set up our equipment. We need to be prepared to do shows the day the fair opens. Then we go over scripts, do some yoga, vocal exercises and talk about entering and exiting the stage. We will make sure people have music and a list of routines they will do.

The rest of the week takes place on the fairgrounds. Each performer will do one show a day. We will do as many shows as we can each day, gathering a fresh audience shortly after they disperse so the next performer can get on stage and begin as quickly as possible.

This is a Boot Camp. A lot of people come here thinking it will be an eight hour day, like in a classroom, but many days may be 12-14 hours.

Lifelong friendships are created because we are all like-minded with a similar goal and interest: to be able to do Stage Hypnosis Shows and get paid a fair market price for doing them.

I am very excited to be having three boot camps this year. Excited I tell you – very excited!

2019

The SandMan’s Stage Hypnosis Boot Camp is at the Western Montana Fair, Missoula, MT August 5-11, 2019.

I am excited. this will be Boot Camps 10th incarnation. The Western Montana Fair has an estimated attendance of 80,000 people over five days.

The lodging for the Stage Hypnosis Boot Camp in Missoula, MT will be in a home / AIRBNB. The prices for an AIRBNB are 1/2 the price of a hotel.

I expect to have six students, Lisa and myself at each of these stage hypnosis training class, a total of eight people.

We will do a day and a half of classroom training learning about sound and video as we will use the equipment in our hypnosis shows at the fair. This basic introduction takes place before the fair opens. Students should expect to arrive the Sunday before or Monday the first day of Boot Camp and we will gather for our first pow-wow just before dinner, then go to dinner together.

The second day we will walk through the Fairgrounds and set up. We need to be prepared to do shows the third day. We will go over scripts, do some yoga, vocal exercises and talk about entering and exiting the stage. We will make sure people have music and a list of routines they will do.

The next five days will take place on the fairgrounds. Each performer will do one show a day. We will do as many shows as we can each day, gathering a fresh audience shortly after they disperse so the next performer can get on stage and begin as quickly as possible.

This is a Boot Camp. A lot of people come here thinking it will be an eight hour day, like in a classroom, but many days may be 12-14 hours.

Every night we gather for a meal after we leave the fairgrounds and go over hypnosis show notes and we again pow-wow about how the day went. This builds camaraderie.

Lifelong friendships are created because we are all like-minded with a similar goal and interest: to be able to do Stage Hypnosis Shows and get paid a fair market price for doing them.

I am very excited to be having two boot camps this year. Excited I tell you – very excited!

After doing this for so many years, we have determined that a lot of our students are ready to jump on stage, but do not know a strong stage induction. Many of our students are clinical hypnotist, or magicians, or have studied hypnosis all their lives but have never done any type of induction. To accommodate this, Lisa will be teaching a one-day, before Boot Camp, Induction Training. The cost for non-participants in the Boot Camp is $375. If you are attending the boot camp that follows, the price is discounted $100 and costs $275.

OREGON Induction Training will take place beginning the evening of July 14th and end late afternoon July 15th in Oregon.

MONTANA Induction Training will take place beginning the evening of August 4th and end late afternoon August 5th in Montana
