You will get on stage and do a show every day.
You will get coaching with notes two directors write up and give you to keep and review
We will take photos of you, so you have a good starting promo photo you can use for social media, a postcard, and use in your advertising.
We discuss some marketing, creating websites, Social Media pages, and other methods of getting shows – but this is not the focus of Boot Camp. Instead, our focus is on making you do shows in real-life situations.
Technology is important – know and understand microphones, headsets, mixers, amps, speakers, receivers, wires, connectors, MP3 players, remotes, wireless systems, and video cameras are part of this. Still, one week is never enough to master these things. However, we do give you a strong introduction.
Minimal group size makes this training in-depth and very personal.
You work hard for a week and succeed!

What will it take for you to participate?
You get access to our Video Boot Camp Training on Vimeo
We have dozens of shows, by us and others. We break down the parts of the shows for you.
Before you attend Boot Camp with us, we expect you to either know a good induction or transcribe one of our inductions before you come to class, so you have some working knowledge of an induction.
If you choose to use your own induction, that’s fine. However, you will be getting on stage and doing shows, so we really recommend you have some working knowledge of how to do an induction. We will learn the rest together!
In 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017, Alan Sands attended HypnoThoughts (presenting in 2016 and 2017) in Las Vegas. (http://HTLive.net)
I also returned to the Jerry Valley / Tommy Vee / Michael DeSchalit classroom stage hypnosis training in Las Vegas in March 2016. (https://www.stagehypnosisseminar.com)
Alan attended the Ultimate Stage Hypnosis Conference in March 2017; was a presenter at the Ultimate Stage Hypnosis Conference in 2018, and presented at HypnosisWorld in 2019. Alan was invited back to present at HTLive 2021 but was unable to attend. Lisa (alias, Misty) has attended all nine HTLive conferences and regularly presents at them.
Why do I go?
When I began doing magic lectures, I saw other magicians lecture to learn how to lecture. So I knew my material but needed polish in ‘how to deliver it.
I began doing comedy stage hypnosis shows in 1993. And, beginning in 2013, The SandMan’s Stage Hypnosis Bootcamp. I have now run
eleven twelve Bootcamp programs with 34 38 students … and I know I can always learn more.
I attended Jerry Valley’s 1st stage training in ’99 with Ormond McGill and Shelly Stockwell.
I absorbed a lot while I was in each of these classes. I call my boot camp training “Coaching.” It’s different from other trainers and how they train because I put you on stage, day after day, show after show.
Doctors don’t become doctors sitting in a classroom. Doctors do classroom, internships and then they practice.
You want to be an entertainer – a performer – perhaps a presenter. But, unfortunately, you can not learn how to entertain, perform, or present sitting in a classroom.
I read books, watched other performers, took classes (clinical and stage), and did shows when I started. But I had no coach, no director, no one giving me small, subtle hints on safety and how to be more effective. I wish I had the stage direction I now offer.
We want you to succeed.
Boot Camp is designed how I wish I had the opportunity to learn when I began performing. Half my alumni have asked to come back and participate again – and a few of them three and four times – so they can improve even more. That is my measure of success! Please, talk to them directly.
- A complete list of every student and their emails are available by asking.

These are 12-14 hour days!
This is Stage Hypnosis Boot Camp!
This is not for the faint of heart! You will do shows!
Our training includes classroom, usually a smattering of reading, watching videos, getting on stage – but most of all … you DO shows!
Entire Solo Shows
With an audience of fresh volunteers, show after the show: no ‘Hypno-junkies’ or fellow students. You will get old & young volunteers just like you will get in actual shows! THAT is the only way to learn how to do stage hypnosis! You will have large audiences and small audiences, just like in real life.
As one past student said, “Alan pushes you off the dock and into the water, and you learn how to swim” however, I am still there and will not let you drown. I am your lifeguard.
You learn to do shows – real shows – in the real world. I have a 100% success rate.
Are you ready to become a stage hypnotist? Then The Sandman’s Stage Hypnosis Boot Camp is for you.
It’s time to MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Other trainers take as many students as they can get, sit ’em in a classroom & lecture them for 1 to 5 days. The students leave the classroom, never having done a full show or a show with people who have never been hypnotized.
Would you take a cooking class and never actually cook, or perhaps the class uses all canned and frozen, previously prepared ingredients?
That’s not how people learn things.
Lisa and I take the group and bring them to a classroom. We learn audio, video and discuss the parts of a show, so you are ready; then we go to fairgrounds, and you get on stage multiple days in a row, doing shows!
When you leave, you will say, “YES, I can do a show!” with confidence!
