By participating in classes, students learn how to work as a team to achieve their goals and perform complex illusions. Learning cooperation and communication skills is incredibly important for children during the learning process, and performing magic creates a fun way for them to practice these essential life skills. From practicing with a partner to working with a whole group, students can learn how to collaborate more effectively by taking part in magical activities during summer camp.
Develops Problem-Solving Ability
Putting on a magic show or performing a single magic trick involves solving a range of problems. From the practice required to the timing and audience management, magic tricks can require a lot of problem-solving skills. Problem-solving is an important life skill that students need to learn and perfect, and mastering a magic trick creates space to subtly practice these skills in an enjoyable way. By learning these magic tricks, students will in turn learn how to solve problems quickly, uniquely and efficiently in any situation. This helps get students to be creative with the solutions they come up with!

By teaching students these unique skills, it will give students the opportunity to learn how to market their skills and services, negotiate fee's, how to communicate with a variety of crowds and think out-of-the-box to create unique magic tricks. All this while learning the basics about selling tickets for their shows and providing excellent customer service.
