DUE TO COVID, ALL ADULT AND YOUTH PROGRAMMING WILL CONTINUE TO MEET ONLINE
"Growing confidence in children through the learning and performing of magic tricks."
Here's a three-minute video overview of the curriculum used in our youth magic classes.
Steve leads our team of instructors teaching magic classes for youth beginning at age 7. As a past president of The Omaha Magical Society, he knows the importance of working with and through other people to create a fun environment that helps build confidence and character in young people as they learn the art of magic.
His combined life experience as a corporate trainer and youth worker along with his background as a magician for children and families makes him ideally suited for working with young people - passing along the art of magic to the next generation.
Learning and performing magic tricks remains one of those activities that caregivers and their children can truly enjoy together.
Consequently, The Omaha Magical Society offers their ground-breaking Magic That Matures™ classes (described below) to families in underserved areas at no cost to caregivers who qualify.
While the children learn magic tricks, parents and caregivers are given opportunities to repeatedly practice giving effective feedback.
Whether you're a family who might enjoy such a program or a non-profit that believes the families you serve might benefit from such an experience, please use the button below to express your interest or ask any questions that might come to mind.
The Red Cup, The Blue Cup, and The Yellow Cup level of the Magic That Matures™ curriculum each contains eight magic tricks taught in four sixty minute classes (with access to follow-up online videos made available to each family at the conclusion of every class).
Upon successful performance of the tricks at each level, one of the colored cups is awarded to the participant along with a bonus magic trick that can be done with that cup. Upon successful completion of all three stages, the participant owns his/her own set of what is historically believed to be the oldest magic trick in the history of the art The Cups and Balls.
As a full-time performing professional magician, Steve's focus has increasingly been directed towards passing on the art that has become his passion.
He teaches magic classes as part of the team in the club's Junior Magician program. However, he understands that for many new students the magic classes will need to be brought to them.
As Director of our Family Magic Nights, Steve works with a staff of teachers and grant writers to continue securing the funding for providing this resource for an increasing number of area non-profits.
