Sleight of Hand Workshop

The Sleight of Hand Workshop

You may be familiar with Mike’s themed comedy magic shows that he presents each year for children during the Summer Reading Club. However, during the rest of the year, he also performs sleight of hand magic for adults at corporate events and private functions (including the 55th Inaugural Candlelight Dinner for President George W. Bush, and on several occasions for former Vice President Al Gore at the Vice Presidential Residence). Over the past several years of performing for children at the libraries, librarians (and parents) have frequently asked if Mike had a program for YA Groups. It finally occurred to Mike that a sleight of hand workshop would be perfect for teens, and that is exactly what he’s created! Drawing on his experience as a performer of sleight of hand, Mike has created a program that is challenging enough to hold the interest of teens yet not so difficult that no one will be able to grasp the techniques taught. No previous experience is needed for the students to attend the sleight of hand workshop, just a willingness to learn some mind-boggling things that they can use to amaze their family and friends.

The Details…

Professional magician and sleight of hand expert Mike Rose presents The Sleight of Hand Workshop for students aged 12 and up. Students will learn tricks of the trade including introductory sleight of hand, performance tips, magic history tidbits, and reference sources for further study.

The fee for The Sleight of Hand Workshop is $295 complete. It is a 60 minute session and, due to the sophisticated nature of the material taught, this program is intended for YA Groups (ages 12 -17) at your library. The workshop can have up to 35 students in attendance. All necessary props are provided by Mike Rose and the props are given to the students to keep at the end of the workshop. If more than 35 students would like to attend The Sleight of Hand Workshop, an additional 60 minute workshop can be scheduled on the same day at the reduced rate of $250 each (that is, $250 for each session making a total of only $500 for the two 60 minute sessions).

Remember, all necessary magic supplies are provided by Mike Rose so the students can begin performing their magic right away. And of course, they get to keep the supplies, which means each student will go home and continue practicing their new sleight of hand skills they learned at your library!

The fee for The Sleight of Hand Workshop is only $295 per 60 minute session for up to 35 students. However, if you coordinate with another library in your area to schedule a program on the same day, you will both receive the discounted rate of only $250 each! Merely e-mail a few librarians in your area, choose a date, and save!
