what we are doing

"How cool!!! I wish I could do those wonderful things with only a deck of cards!!!"

A lot of people say those words when they see a magician performing live on tv or right there a few centimetres from their faces.

Everyone loves magic and it is never late to learn a little bit of it.
In this course we will go through a less than 5 minute lesson on the history of magic to understand why it became such an amazing and unique performing art. did you know that the great Harry Houdini picked his name to honour a bloke called Robert Houdin?? but who was that guy??

The same way Harry Potter lives in parallel world, magicians do as well and with this course a window will be opened for the students to give a sneak peek into it..... but of course, only if they accept to follow the golden rules...

If you ever wanted to learn how to become a magician, this is your opportunity. You are wrong if you think you need a lot of sleight of hand to perform a magic miracle. Some people may know some party tricks, but we will learn how to transform and present some real magic that will amaze your family and friends.

what you will learn

- How anyone can do magic
- How magic became a performing art
- Who the best magicians were/are
- How to present a magic trick
- The golden rules (magician´s oath)
- Some small miracles ( can´t tell you that here....)
