As the year began, many young people’s resolutions included making decisions about their careers. About 26 youngsters have chosen to become magicians – not a very popular field in society.

They started their journey at the College of Magic, in Claremont, where they were dazzled by what happens in the real world of magicians on Saturday 2 February. Their lessons commenced immediately following an orientation session, and these learners look forward to their six-year-long journey.

“We’re so excited to learn everything about magic and its allied arts, including puppetry, which we’re really interested in. It’s so cool learning the art of magic with a friend,” said Alana le Roux from Rondebosch East.

Finley Dale-Roberts from Plumstead said he is excited about the prospect of learning at the alma mater of his magical role-model, Larry Soffer, who also learnt his incredible mentalism skills at the College of Magic.

The college’s founder and director David Gore gave a warm welcome, saying: “What an astonishing joy to welcome the next generation of young magicians to our wondrous institution! We look forward to guiding them on their magical educational journey and look forward to all of their future incredible feats.”
