Before David Blaine popularise (and coined the term) "street magic" there was close-up magic. At that time, knowledge of the secrets behind magic was only available to the privileged few. In recent years, especially after the rise of youtube, one can learn magic tricks everywhere. However, there did not seemed to be an increase of performer. People tend to spend their money on tricks and do not perform them, not even for their loved ones. In this class, you will be taught two to three simple tricks that you will be able to perform immediately, and you will go onto the street to perform for a stranger. The focus of the class will be on performance instead of tricks or theories. Topics like approaching confidence, and managing the energy level of your spectator will be touched on.
Bring one of the following:
Passion and curiosity
Photos/ Videos of the class
Suggestion for improvement/ Feedbacks
Support (for peers)
