There’s a lot to learning how to perform street magic, but we’ll help you get started here at the Free Magic School.
Street magic is a spin-off from traditional forms of magic performance. As a street performer, you draw in an audience from people passing by and you perform an entire act(s) for them.
In exchange, you seek compensation either by having a receptacle for tips available throughout the act, or by “passing the hat” around at the end of your performance.
Street magic often consists of close-up magic like sleight of hand, card magic, and occasionally mentalism, though the ability to draw and hold an audience is frequently cited by practitioners as a skill of greater importance than the illusions themselves.
When you get enrolled in our free magic training program, you’ll be sent a series of tutorials where you can sit back and watch step-by-step tutorial videos to help you achieve your goal of becoming a magician. At the end of each lesson, you’ll be able to post comments and links to your videos to get feedback and critiques of your performance.
