What's Included

As a grandparent have you ever seen your grand children’s eyes light up with wonder at the completion of a magic trick? Have you watched their amazement when a coin is made to disappear and subsequently is pulled from the back of his/her ear? Or, when he/she has picked a card from a shuffled deck and it is immediately identified by the magician? Or, sitting at the table after dinner, a paper napkin is torn to shreds. The pieces are rolled up into a little ball and handed to someone who proceeds to open it up only to find the paper napkin restored? The course will be taught by Andy Weintraub, the founder of The CENTER and its resident magician for the last thirty years. Using common household items, you’ll learn the techniques to accomplish the above and lots more - simple slight of hand, preparation of gimmicks and their handling, and, most important, how to perform the effect, including what to say, how to lie, how to misdirect, etc. For those who are interested, we’ll also explore the world of magic and the magicians who inhabit that world. You need not be a grandparent to enroll in Magic Tricks for Grandparents. Anyone age 16 and over welcome!
