Bernard and I have run ‘Wizard’s Workshop coming up on our 8th year… Since the very 1st year we have helped children with physical or mental challeges shine thru the ‘art of magic!’
Sometimes, it’s coming up with different secret techniques (Hidden moves) that are more manageable for different students. Other times it’s been teaching it in many different ways to get the point across.
And even just refocusing those students on their favorite magic illusions from an earlier session.
Each child is different in skill, creativity, and execution during a performance. That’s the magic of kids…you never know what the outcome will be till it’s over…some students that were focused, but shy become hams during the show for their parents. Others might run into a minor challenge and because it hadn’t happened in practice or rehearsals it can be very unnerving. But when the individual performances are completed and the show is over their new skills in public speaking have become sharper, confidence is gained, and the smiles on their parents faces say it all…Now that’s magic!
