**Update – It has come to our attention that The Magic Shop has, unfortunately closed and is therefore no longer offering magic lessons**
Magic is a great hobby that has countless benefits. Magic assists with ones public speaking skills, encourages independent study, strengthens academic skills, and develops fine motor skills for the younger ones, and is a ton of fun! – Danielle Lazaroff, The Magic Shop
Did you know that The Magic Shop in Levittown offers free magic lessons every Saturday? The 45-minute classes are for kids and adults and will introduce new magicians to the fundamentals of magic so that they can perform tricks successfully and with confidence. The only eligibility requirement for kids is that they are able to see over the counter and can follow simple directions (parents, use your best judgement if the lessons are appropriate for your kids).
Each class is taught by the owner of The Magic Shop, Phil Cartini, who even after all these years is still thrilled by magic and loves the hobby and he shares that passion with his students. Through magic, Phil also teaches kids to respect others if they don’t know as much as they do and to be humble about things they do know. About 5 different tricks are included in the free lessons, so feel free to come more than once!
The Magic Shop is located at 3711 Hempstead Turnpike in Levittown. Classes are held on Saturdays at noon and 7pm and all materials are included. If you are interested in attending a free magic class, please call 516.822.5074 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register and for more information.
