20 Years of Magical Entertainment!
Dazzling Dan might have started playing with magic as a child over 25 years ago, but in the world of magic if your not performing to a live audience you are just kidding yourself. In 2016 Dazzling Dan performed a momentous "20 Year Show" for the students at Inverleigh Primary School, on Thursday 13th of October 2016…the exact same date and location of his first public performance 20 years ago!
The celebrations continued as Dan then appeared at the Royal Geelong Show, on Saturday 15th October 2016, the location of his second public appearance as Dazzling Dan the Magic Man.
Corangamite Regional Library Tour
Winter Holidays, June-July 2016
In a whirlwind tour Dazzling Dan performed and taught magic at all 11 Corangamite Regional Libraries!!!
There was magical storytelling, tuition and fun! Audiences of all ages participated in the show and learnt magic during Dan's Pop-up Magic Club. Dan's daughter's Lily (5yrs) and Isabella (3yrs) were also part of the tour, demonstrating their flair for magic!
When Dazzling Dan's mum presented him with a unique gift, a knot tied in a bottle??? Dan had to meet the wizard responsible.
Barry and Dan quickly struck up a rapport, bouncing ideas around, and it was wonderful to be mentioned in this piece.
