30 minute magic classes
We can coordinate a skype or messenger call and I can sit down with you and teach you a few easy to learn magic tricks. I am a professional magician and have hundreds if not thousands of hours teaching magic. 27 years of performing full time as a magician in corporate and private events.
I will teach you some great starter magic tricks that will get you on the road to blowing the minds of your friends an family.
My magic classes can be done in person within the Denver metro area at a public meet up coffee house venue. OR virtually over Skype. I have done both and they have worked wonderfully. I am currently trying to put together a PDF file as well as an added value supplement. Anyone who has taken a class with me or who does take a class with me will receive this PDF as part of the Class.
Training & Qualifications
Full time professional magician and part time communications educator at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. I work in three different restaurants performing magic for customers. Restaurant clients pay to have me perform for their guests. During the weekends and week I have other magic gigs that I do for both public and private events. I have over 27 years of professional experience and my communication skills fit right into my work as a magician.
Availability & Preferences
Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays during the day from 9 am until noon.

About Dennis Vander Houwen
I am a full time comedy magician who performs magic in restaurants and for public and private events. My other work includes working as a communications educator at the University of Colorado. I tea...ch medical students communication skills and have a passion for understanding effective communication. For fun I enjoy Tenkara fly fishing, playing my ukulele, camping , hiking, and hanging out with my son and wife. I love bow ties, embrace a lifestyle of simplicity and minimalism, drink great coffee, am somewhat of a beer snob, enjoy a good scotch and nice night out under the stars. Recently I started a cottage business making artisan magic wands for magicians and wizarding folk. I enjoy do it your self projects and love making my own things. I like to write, have a blog and one published magazine article under my belt. I am a veteran of the Gulf War where I was a combat photographer. I now mostly take pictures of fish, wildlife, landscapes and family. show moreOpen to other proposals
