Unlocking Secrets is the first in the Wand series of Discover Magic courses and is a requirement for progression to the higher Wand Levels.
The program consists of ten ninety minute classes designed to teach the 8 traits of a true magician and provide each child with a solid foundation as a performing magician. Hidden in these fun and interactive classes are simple and powerful life changing lessons. Through the act of practicing and performing magic and working with others, your child will develop priceless communication and people skills – without even realizing it.
The first five classes focus on learning at least eight magic tricks and developing the confidence, the 4th trait, to perform – which comes from the first three traits of respect, preparedness and enthusiasm. The second set of five classes builds on this confidence through the development of the traits of humility, creativity , authenticity and giving. Your child will learn and perform at least eight additional magic tricks. The final class will be their performance as part of the Graduation Show, which will be a demonstration of all that they have learned to their family and new friends. It will be their opportunity to give, the 8th trait, the gift of their magic. Following the Graduation Show, your child will be awarded their Certificate of Advancement and a specially designed Discover Magic Purple wand, their key to progress to the next wand level.
During the classes, our master magicians will work one-on-one and in groups with your child as they learn about the eight traits and they practice, rehearse and perform each new magic trick. Your child will explore his or her creativity, practice speaking skills, and develop sequential thinking. After each class, your child will be given a new ‘top secret word’ which they will use to access the online video content relating to the class and additional magic tricks that they can learn on their own. We encourage you to review each lesson with your child and to watch the online videos with them as they will give you access to what you child has and is learning.
At the end of the ‘Unlocking Secrets – Purple Wand’ program, your child will come home with cool tricks, new friends, new confidence and unforgettable experiences.
We supply each child with custom made magic tricks created for smaller hands, and we use a variety of instructional tools to keep them interested and excited about learning.
