April 2022 - Dazzling Dan the Magician

Bookings for April 2022 - Dazzling Dan the Magician

Dazzling Dan entertains with cheeky comedy magic and storytelling, that engages and mesmerises children and parents alike.
Every child feels included in the magic, whether they assist Dan out the front; or decided to play tricks on Dan from where they sit in the audience.
Dan’s professional magic show brings a certain structure, an organised excitement and calm at the same time. This is very predictable and comforting to children with anxiety or social awkwardness.
Having a child on the Autism Spectrum with Sensory Processing needs, Dan understands how magical a show presented in the right way can be. Dan intuitively understands how to adjust for maximum enjoyment and fun for all.
