THE BENEFIT OF LEARNING AND SHARING MAGIC
RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA
WALLACE LEE - DICK SNAVELY RING #199
Any youth between the ages of 8 through 17 years with a serious interest in the Performance Art of Magic is welcome to join. Parents are always welcome and encouraged to attend each session. Guests are welcome to attend one (1) lesson with full privileges at the $35.00 per lesson rate as a "program test drive".
MAGIC STUDY SESSIONS
Lessons are managed in 6-month sessions. Sessions begin with the January and July lessons each year. Students may join only during the months of January or July. Lesson fees are $210.00 per 6-month session paid at the start of each session. Lesson fees include all lesson materials, books, instruction, and password-protected online video lesson refreshers.
HOW IS THE TYPICAL WORKSHOP RUN?
Our Magic Youth members meet with experienced professional and amateur Triangle magicians to learn magic history, ethics, stagecraft, and performance theory. Students enjoy hands-on instruction of one or two effects based on the lesson's principle or theory. Students are provided with all materials, study notes and hands-on instruction for each effect. Instructors are always available by email through the month for questions and assistance. Parents are always welcome and are encouraged to attend and participate. Students need someone with whom to practice and evaluate new skills. A knowledgeable and supportive parent really helps. Magic Youth workshops generally end by 6:30 PM.
THE FUTURE OF MAGIC
In 2007, the Raleigh Magic Club formed Magic Youth Raleigh to provide training and guidance in the theatrical art of magic to the Triangle's budding young magicians. These magic classes generally meet on the First Saturday of each month at 5:00 PM at New Horizons Fellowship, 820 E. Williams St in Apex, North Carolina. Please check our Ring Calendar to confirm the next scheduled session.
RALEIGH MAGIC CLUB
IS THIS A SECRET SOCIETY?
The Raleigh Magic Club and the International Brotherhood of Magicians are not secret societies. We believe that the Performance Art of Magic must be shared to be truly appreciated. However, we do protect the secrets of our craft. We believe that revealing a magic secret reduces a beautiful and hard-worked magic effect into a baseless puzzle with no real charm. The true joy of magic is found in its secrets.
YOUTH MEMBERS OF THE RALEIGH MAGIC CLUB
Magic Youth Raleigh students are eligible to join the Raleigh Magic Club as Youth members. Raleigh Magic Club dues are included in your session fees. Youth members and their families are welcome to attend all club lectures and special events at a specially discounted Youth Rate. Accompanying parents that are not adult Ring members may attend free of charge as escorts. Nonmember guests and their families may attend most functions at the full Guest rate.
Because we order materials in bulk based on the number of registered students at the start of each session, we cannot offer refunds for missed lessons during a session. A complete lesson magic kit and online video instruction is available to students who miss a lesson.
OUR PROGRAM HAS FIVE BASIC GOALS:
To educate young magicians on the ethics, history and skill of the international magic community;
To provide a safe and professional mentoring association between skilled adult and gifted youth members;
To promote positive self-esteem and confidence among serious young magicians;
To sculpt our magical youth into adults who will honor the fraternal traditions of the I.B.M.; and
To project community awareness of magic as a valued theatrical art and community service.
