The Dallas Magic Academy Returns to Teach the Innovative “Discover Magic” Program at Parish Episcopal School Camp

The Discover Magic course is a unique and exciting program specifically designed to teach not just magic, but how to interact successfully with other people. In fact, it’s best described as a life skills course camouflaged to look like a magic lesson. Kids become so engrossed and entertained in learning and performing the magic tricks they don’t realize they’re also developing incredibly valuable communication skills. There are four wand courses designed for ages 7-12. There are also two Magic Explorers courses designed for ages 5-7.  Each course stands on its own. You do not have to take one course before taking another one. They each  have different props and routines and each teach different principles and techniques of the ART of Magic.
