Millions of Americans watched in fascination as they discovered a secret that Capetonians have known for over 40 years: the College of Magic is certainly a unique organization and learning the art of magic can be a life-changing experience for the youngsters that embark on this special journey.

Having been featured last month on CBS TV’s ‘60 Minutes’ – the most watched news TV show in the United States – the College of Magic is truly a globally recognized organization where children do not simply learn how to perform well on stage, but also in life.

Known internationally as South Africa’s ‘Hogwarts’, the College of Magic is opening its doors to the next generation of aspiring young performers. With its 2023 courses starting soon, the Claremont-based extramural school is inviting children 10 years and older, for a free magic tour and workshop taking place on Saturday 4 February at 10am.

Classes take place on Saturday mornings at the enchanting campus where students will begin their magical studies and explore the additional wonders that the College has to offer in juggling, puppetry, drama, mime and clowning. The College provides a haven for children to be themselves and learn to be stars, regardless of where they come from.

Entry-level courses include:

  • Course One, is a 15-week introductory tour through the world of magic for budding young magicians from ages 10 to 13.
  • Magic and Showmanship course, an intensive 30-lesson programme providing high school students with a solid introduction to magic.

In addition to our in-person classes, the College also offers online courses for children anywhere in South Africa and around the world.

“Magic provides a wonderful new way of learning for students, imbuing them with confidence, the ability to perform and captivate an audience and hope to realise their dreams. We look forward to sharing these positive effects with our aspiring magicians and we cannot wait to share the wonder of magic with all of you!”, says David Gore, training director of the College of Magic.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to join our extraordinary family!

Free tour including a magic workshop for prospective students 10-17 years old and their parents/guardians.
