What They Said…

… about Drama Boot Camp

‘David led really well thought out and executed lessons. It was also wonderful to connect with other drama teachers all trying to figure this out!’
Karen Butler, Literacy Support, New York City

‘Take it! Practical hands on experience within a welcoming community. I have recommended you and your courses to my colleagues.’
Linda Lord, Playwright and Storyteller, Ontario, Canada

‘Doing activities on Zoom with people all around the world is so exciting! It helped me to understand what would work best with my own students.’

Josee Colley, 'Shakespeare Experts', Hong Kong

‘I am excited about this course because I adore David’s approach. Thank you once again for creating this opportunity for those of us who are far far away and for using the problem (going online) itself to offer the solution (going online)!

Azmin Vania, Mumbai, India

‘It’s stimulating and gets the creative juices flowing. David is very knowledgeable and there is great benefit in sharing ideas with participants and in having a little homework to do. I really enjoyed it, and it made me long to be out facilitating again!’

Michelle, Quebec, Canada

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to attend live? Will there be a recording available?
You don’t have to attend all of the sessions live. If you can be at some of them, you’ll get extra benefit. That way you’ll be able to get your specific questions answered.

Yes, there will be replays. We’ll be sending them out as soon as they’re ready!

How much work will I have to do between the sessions?
Most of the activity you’ll be doing will be completed during the workshops. There will be optional assignments to complete outside class time, and it’s up to you how much time you spend on them!
How long is each session?
Each session lasts a minimum of one hour. They may last longer, depending on questions and answers.
Is this an in-depth course?
It’s quite deep considering we only have 3 sessions – you will be taken through some simple yet amazingly effective methods that you can apply to a whole range of themes quickly and easily.
What's the difference between this workshop and your course The Inspiring Drama Teacher? I can't decide which one to sign up for.

Everything that we cover in the Drama Boot Camp is also covered inside The Inspiring Drama Teacher Part One and Part Two. This Boot Camp will include the basic methods to get your drama sessions running.

So what does the in-depth course offer? And do I get a discount?
My full course teaches you a lot more strategies for using drama, provides you with worksheets, resources, videos and exclusive lesson plans to keep you going. There’s a lot more besides.

I’m constantly updating the course to include additional videos, examples and lesson plans. If you’re struggling with any problems around drama teaching then I can help to discuss your issues with you and will often create new material for you to use.

If you love the Drama Boot Camp and want to continue working with me on drama teaching, you’ll receive a special invitation to join The Inspiring Drama Teacher Part Two. If you decide to enrol in the full course, you will receive a full refund on the Drama Boot Camp!
