Founder and Lead Instructor Dorian LaChance

“This is the only program my kid comes home excited to tell me about every detail of his day!”

~ Leslie Stachowicz, Parent

You may have seen Dorian performing magic at a company dinner party, church, school, library or festival, but who is he?

Turning a personal passion into a career is something many dream about and Dorian is no exception. He has turned his life-long hobby of magic into a dream-come-true career offering his high-energy, hilarious brand of magic and comedy for audiences of all ages since 2002.

 

The magic bug bit Dorian at a very early age after receiving his first magic kit for Christmas at eight years old. While that magic kit offered many hours of fun it was the discovery of the magic books at the local library that was the real catalyst for Dorian, reading many of them several times.

After receiving a degree in Art and Design, Dorian worked as a Graphic Designer, putting aside the magic until the bug bit once again in 1999 with the birth of his first child. In just a couple of years he was regularly performing birthday parties and table hopping at local restaurants doing close-up magic and balloon twisting.

Having discovered the power of entertainment and magic to help with the introduction and comprehension of ideas, Dorian began creating educationally significant programs in 2008. Since then he has been visiting schools and libraries all over the south with programs promoting reading, goal reaching, science and character education. In addition, using this same approach to performance, Dorian considers using his talents to impact the lives of children and adults inside the church, with quality entertainment, one of his top priorities.

Dorian, originally from Biloxi, MS, has fond memories of his hometown, but has called Madison, MS his home since 1994 where he still resides with his bride and two children.

About Our Curriculum

 

Get ready to take an amazing adventure into the exciting world of magic. Learn how to make things appear, read people’s minds, and even make objects levitate.  More importantly, kids learn how to put down their electronic devices, interact with others and make new friends. Our purpose is to teach respect, inspire creativity, encourage preparation and so much more all in a safe, friendly, fun environment. Students go home confident and ready to share what they have learned with family and friends. Plus, each magic trick reinforces a critical life skill that goes way beyond the magic.

Each lesson comes with a custom high quality magic prop, top secret file folder, and a special secret word to unlock bonus instructional videos in the online video vault. And much like different colored karate belts, students earn a different colored graduation wand and a certificate of advancement after completing each course.

  

There are four courses, each with completely different magic tricks and a unique focus, and all four courses reinforce the exact same 8 traits: A true magician is: Respectful, Prepared, Enthusiastic, Confident, Humble, Creative, Authentic, and Giving. The experience of magic is created only by performing for and interacting with other people. By applying these eight key traits of a true magician, the magic performance will be stronger. More importantly the same qualities can also build a successful life. Most often in magic, as in life, what you do is not as important as how you do it.

 

This life changing program builds self-confidence and develops critical communication skills in a fun and unique way that is guaranteed to unlock your child’s potential and impact the rest of their life.
