Magic & Mystery!How do magicians pull rabbits out of hats? How do they make them disappear again? This class unlocks the secrets to the techniques used in magic. Children learn to use a variety of normal household items such as cards, coins, cups & balls, rope and paper to perform tricks that are easy to do but which fool audiences every time! Students are also taught the acting, speaking, comedy, and memorization skills essential to the magician's performance, all while building self-esteem. At the end of the session, children will present the tricks they have mastered in a show for parents and friends.

Human Board GamesIn our unique class, students become a human board game as the pieces of the game. What does this mean, you might ask? Students learn about game playing, collaboration, and strategy from the inside out. We create a life-size version of many different board games such as Chess, Checkers, Monopoly, Battleship and Sorry.(For ages 5 and up).
