Since the beginning of times, human beings have a fascination for the unknown. For instance, our primitive ancestors worshipped lightning and thunder. Some of that secret admiration still remains inside us, and that is the reason why we feel an attraction for magicians.
From little kids’ birthday parties to million dollar shows, these professionals have astonished people on the widest variety of places and situations, including movies, books, TV shows, and so on.
Nowadays, there are magic schools that prepare prospective magicians for their future career. These schools do not only instruct magicians in the arts of disappearing handkerchiefs, or taking rabbits out of hats, but also take care of more complete aspects of artistic expression, such as acting, verbal communications and public speeches, and even dance routines, as these arts are becoming more and more helpful when entertaining an audience that is harder to satisfy day by day.
Every day magicians and magic shows are getting more complex and more complete; today if a magician wants to make a difference between himself and the rest of his colleagues, he needs not only to perform flawlessly, but also be in constant search for new visually impressive tricks to attract a highly demanding audience.
Sadly, this creating process often takes several months or even years, so it is usual for famous magicians to remain out of public appearances for a lot of time, and return to stages once a year or maybe every two years with more and more impressive tricks that leave the eager audience breathless.
Back in the past days, magic schools were an option for magicians to improve their proficiency and get better in what they do; today these institutions are essential even for beginners to learn tricks and prepare themselves for this very competitive field.
Magic is not a hobby anymore, today it is a profitable career. It all depends on preparation and creativity.
