CPD for teachers

Continued professional development (CPD) is essential for all of us. Here at Theatre Workout we invest in training to develop our team and grow together whenever we can.
That's why we're delighted to launch our first programme of CPD training for teachers.

Learning Outside the Classroom National Conference: Beyond the Classroom

7th November 2019:

Join Theatre Workout in the Ballroom at the Blackpool Tower for an intensive Physical Theatre workshop to explore techniques designed to heighten communication skills, spacial awareness and creative storytelling.


The conference is now sold out!

Drama for SEN & ESL

Inspired by our 2019 workshop at the Music & Drama Education Expo, this workshop will teach you a series of creative techniques to use with your students with SEN, or who speak English as a foreign language.

Performance is a universal language which transends spoken language barriers. Through practical techniques, you can engage and inspire creativity in students and young people who find it difficult to communicate verbally. The course will have a basis in physical theatre, dance, rythem and body-percussion, movement and physical communication.

Music & Drama Education Expo

Following the success of our two workshops at the 2019 Expo on Stage Combat and Drama for SEN students, Theatre Workout will run three sessions at the 2020 event on 4th and 5th March:

Wednesday 4th: a Devising Physical Theatre workshop to explore creative techniques for creating visually stimulating storytelling.

Thursday 5th: a Creative Careers talk on opportunities within the thriving creative industries, including an update on the Creative Industries Federation's 'Creative Careers Initiative', plus a Stage Combat workshop exploring foundation fight moves and tips on devising fight choreography.


Theatre Workout will be exhibiting at the Expo to discuss further CPD opportunities, school trips and workshops for schools.

Stage Combat

A day-long course learning the fundamentals of stage combat followed by devising choreography inspired by a selection of classic and contemporary plays. The course will enable you to create fight choreography with students for stage and screen which is visually stunning, safe, and true to character, including:

  • Out of distance, on target (punches, slaps)

  • In distance, off target (as above)

  • Reverse Control (grabs & pulls)

  • Contact blows (punches, kicks)

  • Falls and throws

Led by one of Theatre Workout's resident fight directors in a central London studio (tbc)

Working with Text

Working with text can be a real challenge. A good script can provide a wealth of material to create diverse characters and deliver an outstanding performance, but sometimes it can be quite overwhelming.

Inspired by our collective decades of professional acting experience including productions in the West End, National Theatre, RSC, UK tours and more, we've collected some of our favourite techniques for text-based work, including Shakespeare and contemporary scripts.

Workshop led by actors and directors with Theatre Workout
