Students: Magic enthusiasts with a hunger for knowledge and a desire to perform. 8yrs+ (we will consider younger students who demonstrate a strong interest and understanding)
During 8 weeks of discovery, we will hack reality and combine illusions, to create a show where you are the magician. Students learn the secrets of the magician and how to perform their magic act with confidence…and friends!
In Term 2 classes run weekly on Mondays, at Grovedale Neighbourhood House.
Our LEARN MAGIC (all ages 6-15yrs) will run from 4:15pm – 5:00pm. Students learn and construct a new magic trick, working together, sharing ideas and supporting one and other.
We acknowledging older students crave to know more and extend on what is possible so we have created the following……
Dedicated magic students can stay longer, and attend the advanced session EXTEND YOUR MAGIC 5:00pm – 5:45pm, where we create alternative tricks, and combine students own tricks to create a magic act. As a team students practise more advanced techniques in front of each other, discover how to engage with an audience and learn the tricks of performance magic to develop their skills and confidence.
As Dan is the Vice President of the Australian Institute of Magic (AIM), Magic Connections have an invitation for our interested magic juniors to also attend the AIM Junior sessions in Melbourne and compete in the Australian Junior Championships of Magic. These extended classes are the perfect way to refine and build on your own act if entry to competition is desired.
NOTE: Classes started on the 3rd week of Term 2, as the first few weeks of school are always a little chaotic for everyone!

If you cannot attend Dan’s magic course, you can learn a lot from the tricks he has hand picked to sell in his online shop. Dan not only provides quality magic props for beginner magicians, but also snappy, high quality tutorial videos, where Dan himself teaches you how to perform and present the tricks.
Visit Dazzling Dan’s online MAGIC SHOP and start creating magic at home.
Dazzling Dan also conducts magic workshops as part of vacation care programs and holiday promotions.
Visit Dazzling Dan’s Upcoming Public Performances to see where Dan is appearing next and if any workshops are planned.
If you have learnt, understood and mastered all the introductory magic sets, and want to explore more advanced magic and props, a list of reputable magic shops in Australia can be found on the Australian Institute of Magic’s Website.
Remember that buying professional magic props is an expensive exercise, as you pay a premium to learn the secret. Many magic books (and perhaps DVDs) can be found at your local library, which include tricks you can make with household items. YouTube is another place to see magic explained, but I have a few reservations about YouTube (and digital downloads) being the only source of magical learning. Many videos only expose magic, not teach how to best perform the tricks.
If you want to learn how to perform & entertain with magic, I recommend you browse The Australian Institute of Magic’s Website. It lists magic clubs (junior and adult) and events where you can discover and develop your magic with like-minded folk. – australianinstituteofmagic.org

What our customers say
Dear Dan, I just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful performance today for Lachlan’s party. The look on his face today during some of the tricks was just so priceless. There were so many comments made by the adults at the party about how much they enjoyed your performance too. Lachlan has already stated that if his birthday is on a weekend next year that he would like you to appear again! Thanks again.
