Upcoming Mentalism Events
NOTE: THIS CLASS IS SOLD OUT AGAIN THIS YEAR. HOWEVER, WE HAVE ADDED SOME RELATED CLASSES ONE WEEK LATER (JUST AFTER MIND-VENTION) WHICH MAY INTEREST YOU.
In response to many requests and because of extraordinary demand, we are delighted to present another 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, Eugene Burger, and Lawrence 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.
At this 2016 installment of the Master Class for Mentalists, Ross will be offering, for the first time, a keynote lecture titled, "Feature Effects." In this lecture Ross will talk about the qualities that are required for powerful feature effects in a mentalism show and provide detailed instruction for some of his own signature pieces.
This is a rare opportunity! We hope that you will join us in November 2016.

The Master Class for Mentalism is limited to a small group of students. Although there is no pressure to perform, many students choose to present their act (or a mentalism piece they are working on) for expert direction from Jeff, Eugene, Lawrence, and Ross who are all committed to helping you attain new levels of excellence with your performance of mentalism.
If you are looking for detailed, personal instruction in an intimate and safe setting, consider attending a McBride Master Class, magic's most progressive learning experience.
The Master Class includes personal instruction videotaped feedback session. This is the only event in the world of magic that focuses on you and the performance of your magic. Those who choose not to perform are always amazed at how much they learn from experiencing McBride's Master Class process and especially from listening to the critiques of others.
