‘Going from Close-Up to Parlour Magic’ with Jon Armstrong
In this 6-session course, Jon Armstrong will show how to break out of the comfort zone of close up magic and into being able to perform for hundreds on platforms and small stages. The course will take the magic you already do in close up and show you how to make it play larger, while teaching you brand new effects and techniques that can give you a solid foundation for a journey towards stage magic.
If you ever wanted to do magic at an open mic night, a formal gathering, or just wanted to be able to take the stand up or Parlour show you do now and make it even bigger and better, this is the class for you.
The schedule of this class will be Mondays (2 hours of instruction) and Tuesdays (3 hours for workshop/performance) in the PELLER THEATER.
