Magic Without Tricks? Is That Even Possible? 

All of us, at some point, have seen magic and mentalism shows that are trick-focused. They churn out a bunch of tricks in a quick progression and the show’s over. Let’s be honest, that’s not the most efficient way of delivering memorable and meaningful performances.

In order to build highly entertaining shows, it is important to perform magic without tricks. And no, this is not a wishy-washy concept. It is highly practical and you can start implementing these techniques TODAY.


Join Aidan and Ashley as they discuss useful tips about connecting with the audience, letting your magic breathe, asking the right questions, and storytelling.
