Special Guest/Rotating Series
AMA Specialty Series: Cups & Balls with Suzanne
Online instruction has never been better and easier thanks to the pandemic. During our closure, the Board of Trustees worked closely with the 3rd floor staff to offer official online Magic Classes with our talented instructors for everyone from beginners to intermediate to advanced levels. Whilst in-person magic lessons and magician workshops will eventually return, we will be offering the AMA Specialty Series to our magician members. First up is Castle favorite: Suzanne The Magician.
AMA members know and love Suzanne, and many of you have seen her perform in the club over the years. She is the first (and still only) woman to be named Close-Up Magician of the Year by the AMA (2010). She is famously known for her Cups & Balls routine, and many have trained with her privately to improve their technique. Now is your chance to get an inside look at her thinking on this classic of magic.
This is an intermediate to advanced master class. By the end of this 3-hour class (in two installments), you will be on the road to having a solid foundation for flawless technique and a deeper understanding of what will help your cups and balls routine flow more smoothly. This class will open a door for you for what was a very long journey for Suzanne in her sleight of hand development.
Suzanne will share her thoughts on the false transfer, fake push under, fake take, tip load, side load, and a big ball load. Even if you've been performing the cups and balls for years, this class will help you learn subtleties that will move you to the next level.
These two Virtual Specialty Classes will be on Sunday, August 22nd and Sunday, August 29th, from 1pm to 2:30pm PT. Space will be very limited in this class. You must be a magician member in-good-standing for this 2-course session, and you must take both classes.
Only 15 slots available!
