What You'll Get
Since the dawn of time, humans have been fascinated with unexplainable phenomena, such as UFOs and the ever-disappearing second sock. Harness the power of hocus-pocus with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two introductory magic lessons from magician Kameron Messmer (a $40 value). Lessons are held at Illusions Plus in the Alpine Village Shopping Center.
Magician Kameron Messmer unveils the mystery behind magic while teaching hands-on lessons to novice illusionists. Acquire prowess in principles such as misdirection, building a story, and sleight of hand during two hour-long, one-on-one lessons designed for students as young as 7. Sixty-minute sessions start with a demonstration in the art of deception followed by a lesson in psychology, practice time, and performance. A comprehensive trickery tool kit is provided, with items such as twine, a coin, rubber cement, scissors, newspaper, cards, and printed instructions, so that budding magicians can practice Fantasia-esque feats or render dioramas of vanishing bunnies.
Beginners can cull wisdom from Messmer's brain cauldron during feedback sessions and use critiques to better mystify squirrels as to the whereabouts of their nut stores. Although classes are aimed at children, adults who have never brandished 8-balls may benefit from learning the basics. Check out Kameron's calendar, and call to schedule your appointment.
