I recently completed work designing a series of magic workshops for children. The workshops are being offered by a company, UGOT Canada. UGOT began as a company offering after four and extracurricular dance programs over five years ago and has since expanded to include a number of other programs in the realm of art, fitness and education including magic. At the moment, we have two programs ready for delivery, designed for children ages 7-12. We created a sixty-minute one-time workshop which explains and teaches three simple magic tricks and includes some extra tricks performed but not explained. The learning is hands on with a set of materials for every participant. (There are extra fees if you want the kids to be able to take the material home at the end of the workshop.) These workshops are intended for schools, aftercare programs and community groups and are acceptable for groups of up to 35 children with proper staff supervision.
We also crafted an extended workshop which consists of five to eight sixty-minute workshops. These are usually spaced a week apart. The course includes 8-15 tricks with each participant getting a complete set of the material to keep. These extended workshops are recommended for groups of up to fifteen participants.
Currently, the workshops are offered in the GTA. I'm teaching about fifty percent of the workshops personally, but we've begun the process of training additional instructors to offer the workshops outside the GTA as well.
Interested groups should contact UGOT Canada directly.
