A Life Skills Course

Integrated into Magic Class

We empower students to build character, confidence and communication skills for life.  They will embrace the 8 traits of a true magician imbedded into each lesson as they develop creativity and critical thinking skills.  Every child is given the opportunity to feel like a star as he/she is invited to perform in our student magic show on the last day of class.

As the exclusive presenters of the Discover Magic curriculum in Central New Jersey, we are happy to offer students this wonderful opportunity.  Only select magicians across the world are certified to teach the Discover Magic life skills program and your student could be one of the elite to master this program and earn all 4 wands as a young magician.
