Magic and Mentalism Class

Good magic is much more than just knowing tricks. Good magic involves taking your audience on a journey with you. This is true even if you are only performing for one person.

In this class, you will learn some of the fundamentals of magic and how to apply them to a variety of tricks. This class is more than a collection of tricks, however. You could find a collection of tricks on YouTube. This class is about learning how to use the tools of magic to entertain. Once you understand that, you will be able to use what you’ve learned, or learn new tricks and be able to really engage and entertain an audience.

You will leave this class with a collection of supplies and knowledge that you can use for many tricks and the concepts you need to create your own tricks.

During the class you will learn tricks and routines and get to practice them or even perform them if you want to.

You will leave not just knowing some tricks. You will leave as a magician!

This class takes place at the Mystic Krewe “PinChurch” location.  It is limited to no more than 20 participants, with a very limited number of public tickets available.   Tickets are $30 for non-MK members, and $25 for MK members, and include special items and materials.   This is a non-public event – only pre-registrations are allowed.  People who pre-order will be e-mailed details on the class and its location (in Metairie).
