Don't Let Them See You Sweat! The Art Of Performing Magic!

By Dion Semeniuk

The Art of Performing Magic Tricks

We"ve all been there. Our hands are sweaty, your heart is racing and your hands are shaking like a leaf. Yes, I am talking about trying to pull off your first magic trick that you just learned. You are excited to show your friends and family your amazing trick but then when the time comes, boom!!! its like you are standing on stage in your underwear and everyone is laughing at you!! Even though you have practiced the trick hundred times or more and in front of the mirror, it's never the same when you are about to do it to real people.

Well, have no fear, as this you'll be glad to hear it can be conquered and you will pull of your trick like the pros!! You see, it is natural for our body to tense up when the spotlight is on you, now not everybody is the same, some people are just naturally gifted to have that knack of performing for people, they love the spotlight, then there are the other 90 percent that have to work at it to get comfortable of the beading eyes watching there every move.

So, what do we do about this nervousness?? Here are some quick tips for you:

When performing any kind of magic, be it card magic or a certain illusion...the best way to get your audiences attention so they are not focusing on what you are sometimes trying to cover up, is to use your hands as they will always follow your hands when you talk. The other thing is to always look into their eyes, this makes them focus on you also. Last but not least, in your routine, ask your audience questions, this gets them even more distracted and not so focused on trying to find the secret to your magic trick!!

If you do all the above magic trick tips above, you will also notice that you will loosen up in the process knowing that your audience is in your control!!! No more sweaty hands, shakiness, or standing in your underwear feeling:)

You just have to learn some "patter", as in small talk, learn some jokes, some one liners, this will take your magic performance to the next level.

Practice these tips and you will have no problem with your future performances.
