Tips for Tips

Recommended age range 8 – 12. 

Class is appropriate for ages eight and older, but we try to keep groups close to the same age.  However, parents may stay and learn the same tricks for half-price. 

The emphasis of this class is on small object vanishes, restorations, and transformations.  Additional tricks may be added if students learn the planned tricks quickly.
