- Week 1 we will learn the history behind the oldest trick in magic, the cups and balls. Starting with a simple non-sleight routine, the student will learn how to perform this classic of magic. We will also learn a simple sleight to vanish the ball from your hands.
- Week 2 will build on the previous weekend’s sleight of hand lesson with 2 new vanishes and 2 different ways to palm coins. The student will learn a “Coins Across”, or a trick where coins jump invisibly and one by one, from one hand to the other.
- Week 3 is more money tricks and dinner table magic with a top secret magic gimmick. They will learn the torn and restored sugar packet. This same concept will be used to restore ripped bills. They will learn to change a $1 to a $100, and how to make a borrowed and destroyed bill appear inside of an orange.
- Week 4, they will start learning card tricks. We will start by learning how to read minds with a secretly stacked deck. They will learn two complete tricks with a stack and start to learn one of the most useful sleights in card magic, the double lift.
- Week 5, they will build on the double lift. The student will learn how to secretly control a card from the middle of the deck to the top or bottom. They will then learn 3 tricks using all the sleights they’ve learned so far.
- Week 6, the student will learn how to levitate small items at anytime. I will teach them how to levitate cards around their body, how to levitate borrowed coins at a moments notice, and how to levitate a borrowed bill right in front of their eyes.
