Our first class was a comprehensive class on everything you need to know about the Business of Being Santa or Mrs. Claus.

Course has five (5) Modules & includes an optional section:
An On-The-Job PAID training opportunity for the new Santa to go on events with an experienced Mrs.Claus to assist on Santa's first ventures. Or, for the new Mrs.Claus, an experienced elf will assist Mrs.Claus on her first events! An opportunity for Earn-As-You-Learn for both!
Whether you're so new you are wondering if you should even do this, or if you've been a professional Santa for decades, a Revolutionary New Kind of Santa School has something for you! Email with questions like what's in it for you? Or to request a special session on a topic of your interest, or to register for the next session! What a wonderful 2019 learning season we had! Modules in the detailed A-Z curriculum for being a professional Christmas performer & the Specialty Sessions for Seasoned Santas proved the need for these detailed classes! It is quite obvious a one or 2 hour class, as is the norm in Santa schools now, simply cannot give the detailed teaching a half day session on one topic gives! All classes come with one-on-one personal coaching after the class!! THAT'S not out there anywhere in the cost of any tuition at a conventional Santa school!
BOOKING SERVICES FOR SANTA & MRS.CLAUS ALSO AVAILABLE. Email for details.
The 2nd class of 2020 detailed above about portraying the characters has been completed in Atlanta, & as noted above, the Orlando class & all classes moving forward until further notice will be held on line.
The A-Z sessions for new, nearly new Christmas performers & those desiring in-depth training are divided into five (5) modules, all of which you can attend, or pick & choose which one(s) you'd like to attend. Note: should you choose to skip the Logistics module, before you will be permitted to participate in the Earn As You Learn, On The Job Training portion where you are paid to go on events with an experienced Mrs.Claus (or Elf, if the trainees are Santa & Mrs. Claus or Mrs. Claus alone) who trains literally "On-The-Job", will be required to provide background check, entertainers insurance, ICA, W9, & resume with photos as covered in the Logistic module.
The modules in the A-Z training are as follows:
Module 1: The Business of Being Santa/Mrs.Claus
Module 2: Portraying Santa/Mrs.Claus
Module 3: Different Types of Venues
Module 4: Logistics
Module 5: Pre-Season Prep
The Specialty Sessions taught in 2019 gave a working knowledge of Sign Language for the Christmas performer. Role Play & storytelling in sign language was learned & practiced! THE FORMAT WAS SO WILDLY SUCCESSFUL THAT OTHER SCHOOLS IN THE ATLANTA AREA HAVE NOW COPIED THE FORMAT & ARE INCORPORATING IT INTO THEIR CURRICULUMS NOW AS WELL! The final Sign Language Class of 2019 was held in October in the Atlanta area. Specialty Sessions for 2020 will be announced soon.
All classes will be held on line until further notice, and we reserve the right to deny any registration for any reason. 2020 sessions are on Sunday afternoon, 1PM - 5PM.
Just email if you'd like to hear from an OJT Graduate from 2018 or 2019, or from a client who hired a 2018 or 2019 student-Santa!

INSTEAD of trying to take a drink of water from a FIRE HOSE, which, admittedly, is the normal Santa school workshop curriculum up until now - usually from 2 to 5 ALL DAY sessions - with hotel cost, meals, etc., not to mention the high cost of the school tuition itself for Santa & Mrs.Claus.....
Apply what you learn from the curriculum specific topics that appeal to you & you have chosen to take, in a step-by-step process until the Season is here, & THEN....
An event will be prospected for, contracted for, & all you do is show up & experience it, learning from an experienced Mrs.Claus (or Elf if the trainees are a Santa & Mrs.Claus couple, or Mrs.Claus alone) on what to say & do each step of the way! Leave the event further educated......having experienced the event without the pressure of being on your own...AND GET PAID ...instead of you doing the paying for the learning!
