As well as being great fun, learning and performing magic is an excellent aid to increasing confidence, addressing an audience, growing creatively and thinking spontaneously. Attending our Magic camp will also improve your child’s motor skills, and when it comes to school or extramural drama lessons or class show and tell, they will shine.
This absorbing week includes putting on a show, performing parlour magic and creating stunning illusions, to a proficiency where your child will confidently show off their new tricks to you or their siblings! It also represents an excellent opportunity to make new friends, enjoying the limelight in any group.
Skills learned include production (something from nothing), vanishing (using everyday items), transformation, restoration, teleportation, levitation, penetration (passing a solid object through another) and prediction.
"There was a new trick or story coming home at the end of each day! I was shocked with the Friday Magic Show! Really impressed that the teacher could arrange the group of kids to perform this way, but also great to see the joy of performing on the kids faces."
Professional magician Jon Heron has always enjoyed the world of magic and entertaining. In 1997 he called time to his full-time career in advertising to enable him to pursue his life passion.
Having supplemented his natural talent with a qualification in magic and circus from London’s Guildhall School of Music & Drama, Jon has performed to audiences of all ages around the world.
As well as managing Camp Asia’s Magic camps, he teaches in other educational institutions as well as being in demand as a performer at circuses and corporate and social events, still delighted at the reaction of guests to his fresh and extensive repertoire.
Shawn has been a professional magician since 2001. Over the course of his professional career, he’s had the opportunity to perform in South East Asia, India, China and the Middle East.
He was also featured on Asia’s Got Talent Season 1, where his magic and ventriloquist act earned him 4 yes’s from the judges.
Aside from performing at corporate and family events, Shawn enjoys imparting his experiences and skills to a younger generation of enthusiastic, budding magicians.
