Online course: Leisure time animation

Welcome to our online course. The incredible world of animation by STAGEMAN!

1. What is leisure-time animation all about?

Leisure time animation is a special division of tourism, dealing with the organization of people’s leisure time when on holiday. The animator is a person who plays with kids, organizes sports activities and presents evening shows for tourists.

For hotels, leisure-time animation is a great opportunity to improve marketing public relations. Guests have a better opinion of hotels with animation and a lot of these guests come back again in the future. Animation is also about improving the sale of hotel gadgets and services. This is a XXI (twenty first) century service.

2. Mini disco dances

One of the most important activities in hotel entertainment is the Mini Disco. This is a special time for kids to dance with their favourite animators. Most hotels have a Mini Disco every day in the evening. Our company teaches animators to create an awesome performance for the youngest tourists.

Mini Discos are also important for the parents because they can relax a little bit at this time while the animators look after the children. Parents will also be happy to buy a special CD with the Mini Disco music. The hotel can produce these CDs or buy them on the STAGEMAN website.

3. Face painting for leisure-time animators

Face painting is a simple and cheap opportunity to entertain kids and their parents. If you have special paints with all the safety certificates, you can just be creative and offer your guests the possibility to be Spiderman, a butterfly or a tiger.

You don’t need to be talented to do face painting – it’s simple and you can learn it at a one-day training session with STAGEMAN. Tourists will be grateful that you entertained their kids and of course everyone will want to take a picture of you with your pupils.

4. Balloon creatures for leisure-time animators

Maybe it’s hard to believe but from a balloon you can make a dog, a flower and even a snail! Yes, it’s quite simple and very popular in hotel animation. Balloon creatures are wonderful things if you want to impress children and their parents.

STAGEMAN Animators use balloons to create several animals. First you need to fill the balloon with oxygen (you will need a special pump to do this), then you start twisting and then… we have something to give to the kids. You can be sure that they will be excited.

If you would like to buy a special pump and balloons or learn the art of balloon creatures, please visit the STAGEMAN website. It is so easy to be creative!

5. Aquagym for leisure-time animators

There are always some people who don’t like aerobics, because it’s quite hard and exhausting. But we don’t know anybody who doesn’t like aquagym! You can entertain people from the pollside with dynamic music and a big smile on your face. Believe us – tourists will love it!

We teach our animators how to provide the best entertainment for swimmers and less active guests. You can use the latest music hits and your creativity to give a wonderful performance. But remember – it has to be fun, it’s not school so relax and be yourself – that’s the most important point.

If you would like to join one of the STAGEMAN animators training sessions, you will find all the information about it on our website. We have regular training sessions in Europe and Africa – you can be part of this adventure and open the door to the best job in the world!

6. Sports activities for leisure-time animators

Just over half the people who go on holiday are active. So, they like to join sports and fitness classes in hotels.  This is good news for the animation team, because you can do something nice and useful for your guests.

The most important sports in animation are: beach volleyball, waterpolo, boules, darts and mini golf. You can also play football, table tennis or tennis, pool billards, basketball and other sports. You should know all the rules of those disciplines before you start your contract.

On the other hand, the animator has to remember that refereeing can’t be too strict and serious. People are on holiday so you need to give them more entertainment than sports coaching. So be relaxed, open and friendly, even if the game has no rules. Fun is the key.

Tourists will also join your morning fitness programme (from about 10:00 till 11:00). You can offer them aerobics, aquagym, pilates, abdominal exercises, yoga or stretching. We can call it “good morning exercises” or just “holiday gymnastics”.

7. Laughter yoga for leisure-time animators

Laughter yoga is a life changing experience. These simple and funny exercises will make you laugh for sure. This activity has a benefit for the human body so you can use it in your animation programme.

Look at this group of adults who are in a circle and laughing very loudly on the beach. Isn’t it fascinating? You will see that it’s easier to laugh in groups than when you are alone.

You don’t need to have any materials or equipment, just you and the tourists. Special exercises will make you breathe deeply and will relax your mind. After the session you will feel calm and optimistic. This idea is just brilliant.

If you would like to learn how to organize a laughter yoga session or if you would like to have it in your hotel, you will find all the information on the STAGEMAN website:

8. Evening entertainment for animators

It’s not as difficult as you think to create a funny, interesting and interactive show for hotel tourists. This is all about ideas and experience which you can get from STAGEMAN training. In all-inclusive hotels, the evening show is just a must.

You can organize shows like: Miss or Mister Election, Men against Women, Couple Show or Who wants to be a Millionaire (these shows we call “guest shows” because we have tourists on the stage with the animation team). You can also perform some musicals, like “Grease” or “Mamma Mia” or prepare other dance or acrobatic shows (these we call “animation shows” – they are without any guests on the stage).

In Arabic countries you can also see a Fakir Show, an Oriental Show, a Cobra Show or Evening Bellydancing but mostly these will be performed by special groups from outside the hotel.

Each hotel should propose some kind of evening entertainment for their guests. If you would like help to organize evening entertainment in your hotel, contact the STAGEMAN Team on (
