Top 3 Magic Trick Tips to Performing Magic - Articles Surfing

Magic has been around for as long as one can remember. Magic is something that can take people from reality to fantasy. I have been interested in magic since I was just little toddler. I'll never forget the day when I actually thought that my very own ear could produce nickels and dimes, real money! I was amazed at how my uncle could just reach out to my ear and pull out a dime at will. This was unbelievable in my eyes! What was more unbelievable was that my uncle actually let me keep the money that he kept pulling from my ear. I would run down to the local candy store and get my favorite sugar coated candy and would be on cloud nine for the rest of the day. Funny thing was, is when I tried to reach into my ear, there was no money coming out. How was it that my uncle could do such a thing and I couldn't? Well that is when I needed to find out how this was done and was introduced to the wonderful world of magic!

Over the years I have learned many magic tricks. From getting my first magic trick set, you know, the 50 magic tricks in one box set, classic stuff. They still sell the same magic tricks in that one box that I learned 25 odd years ago. Nicer packaging of course and just slightly more expensive, but still a great introduction to magic. The one thing that is not taught in these magic trick sets is the actual art of performing the actual magic trick. We can all follow the instructions on how to do to the magic trick, but no one really tells us what to say or how to act before, during, and after the magic trick. I have learned over the years through experience and from watching the masters of magic first hand, on exactly what it takes to create the moment of astonishment and disbelief. I present to you, The Top 3 Magic Trick Tips to Performing Magic! These will guarantee great reactions and memorable moments when performing your future magic tricks.

1. Patter ' This is the most important piece of your routine when doing magic tricks. You can take an ordinary magic trick and turn it into a whole theatrical event if you can come up with the right dialogue to assist your magic trick. Now this is hard to teach but there are some common rules you should follow. One is to always look into your spectators' eye. Make sure you have their attention and they are listening to your every word. Second is humor. Humor is what gets people in a relaxed state and sets them up to be caught off guard as to what you are about to perform.

2. After Effect ' Once you have performed your magic trick and your spectator is freaking out as to what they have just witnessed, do not say nothing to them. Just stay quiet for a minute and just stare at them. I do this all the time and it drives people nuts! They will just flip out, wanting to know what just happened but you are not saying a word. You just let them talk and talk and they will build up what just happened even more just by themselves. Try it, it works, you'll see what I mean.

3. Confidence ' You have to go in knowing that you are going to pull off one of the biggest magic tricks ever. You can't be going in nervous or weak, it will show and take away from the trick as the spectator will suspect something right from the beginning. Practice, practice, practice until you can do it blind folded. You need to come across as you truly are magical and have no doubt that in your mind that you can show someone something truly amazing. Your spectators will feed off this energy and will give you more respect for it.
