Master Class for Mentalism, 2021 - LIVE IN LAS VEGAS$895.00 ($450.00 minimum deposit)Register
In response to many requests and because of extraordinary demand, we are delighted to present this Master Class aimed exclusively at mentalists. Jeff McBride's Master Class is the premier program in contemporary magic where YOU and your performance take center stage in a safe and supportive setting.
At this Special Master Class, all of the performances, talks, and breakout sessions are focused on the performing art of MENTALISM. Regular faculty members Jeff McBride and Dr. Larry Hass will share their thoughts on Mentalism and Mystery Entertainment. And our Special Guest for the Class will once again be ROSS JOHNSON, perhaps the most successful corporate mentalist in the United States. This is a RARE opportunity to learn from Ross, because he does not write books and rarely speaks to groups of mentalists. We are thrilled to be able to spend several days with him finding out what has made him so successful.
In addition to the Personal Performance Feedback sessions--when you get expert direction on improving your performances--the Master Class for Mentalism features small-group learning and trick teaching as well as KEYNOTE LECTURES on the art of mentalism by Ross, Larry, and Jeff. These are high-level, cutting edge lectures on the topics, techniques, and/or leading figures in our field, prepared especially for this course.
This is an exciting opportunity, and it will sell out quickly. We hope that you will join us this November 11-14, 2021!Learn more about Master Class for Mentalism, 2021 - LIVE IN LAS VEGAS

As has always been the case, the Conference will feature 18 of our remarkable P-E-P Talks by attendees. (Go HERE to see how you can submit a proposal to make a presentation to the community.) It will also feature Ensemble Shows, break-out room discussions, teaching magic effects, and discussing ideas "beyond tricks" that are essential to the art of magic..
Hosted by the Magic & Mystery School Faculty, the Magic and Meaning Conference is an annual gathering of magicians, scholars, public speakers, professionals from many areas, and performers of diverse arts. It is for anyone who loves magic, storytelling, the philosophy of magic, and who wants to think about magic in new ways.Learn more about Magic & Meaning Conference 2022 - LIVE Online
