A day of Magic related workshops, presented by Angel Simal and Chelfyn Baxter. Between them they bring over 30 years of study and performance experience. inspired by Las Jornadas del Pensamiento Mágico and Essential Magic Conference they have constructed a series of talks and workshops to bring value to both beginners and experienced performers and magicians.

10:30 Workshop 1: Maximum Impact
Technique is important, but it's the performance and the audience connection that
separates a true magic moment from a mere trick. Chelfyn Baxter outlines a strategy to allow for practice and development of this key skill, and to open up opportunities for story telling and improvisation in magic.

12:00 Workshop 2: Overcoming Risks
Confidence is a key feature that any performer must have on stage. There are several factors that can help you gain it, and on this workshop we will learn how we can overcome stage fright and nerves by doing an analysis of risks. Angel Simal will share his methodology for finding the right solutions and rescue plans for all those things that could go wrong.
