The Essential Sleight Of Hand They Use
Close up magicians have a lot of tricks and methods at their disposal for your wedding performance, and the most reliable and common of these is sleight of hand. This is a classification of manual dexterity that is seen as being incremental to magic entertainment and the art of conjuring and performing tricks.
Sleight of hand has many aspects to it and is often confused as being a form of magic itself due to its close connection with magic tricks. It is not in itself a form of magic but if you are looking for a high-quality magician then they will be certain to have a good mastery of sleight of hand.
This is a fundamental of the magician’s trade generally and due to the small intimate nature of close up, or ‘micro’, magic it is essential to pick someone who is adept at sleight of hand to impress groups. Close up magic does not just engage and amaze though, it is often used to dispel accusations of ‘planted’ audience members collaborating in tricks, or the use of gimmicks. Sleight of hand benefits from being performed in front of small groups of people as this allows them to suspend their belief for the magic performance happening just a few feet in front of them.
Sleight of hand uses physical dexterity and impeccable timing in order to capture a truly magical feel for performances and someone who can use all of these to their advantage is someone you want for your events.
