Summer Camp Week Seven: Social Magic with Erik Tait

  • ShadowboxLive's Backstage Bistro 503 S Front Street Columbus, OH (map)

You think magic is cool, but you have no desire to disappear the Statue of Liberty, or live in a box above Time Square for seven days without food or water. 

You DO have a desire to occasionally impress your friends and family with your latest antics, which is why learning social magic can make you the most popular person at the bar, your next family dinner or at your annual friends' cookout. 

Join magician Erik Tait as you learn the art of close-up magic, and ways to use simple objects to fool a friend, a small group or your little cousins. 

Students should purchase and bring a deck of cards to class. All other materials will be provided.
