Are you frustrated and need help juggling.

Dan's teaching progressions make juggling easy. Learn to juggle in the shortest time possible with accelerated teaching progressions.

Dan has taught his students to juggle 5 balls, 3 flaming torches, and Diaboblo.

To start you'll need 3 beanbags or balls. It's best if they don't roll away when you drop them.

About Daniel

When I first started performing magic professionally, I found information was difficult to find. Everything in books were either poorly explained, dated, disorganized, or difficult to decipher. In addition, there was little rhyme or reason to the way information was laid out. There were no progres

Great first lesson with Daniel. Ready for tomorrow!
Nick W.
I just finished my first magic lesson with Dan. He is an extremely talented magician and provided some excellent insight into some of the foundational concepts and principles for success. I am looking forward to continuing my magic educational journey with Dan!
Don
As a 70 year old professor/author I have always wanted to learn a magic trick to entertain because I've so enjoyed the wonderful illusions and slight-of-hand magic of performers like Daniel Chan. I never knew it would be so affordable to have someone with his level of professionalism actually teach me. I just had my first lesson and can honestly say I can't wait for the second one. His devotion to theory and is ability to make it practical are remarkable.

Cory is fantastic! He is polite and very professional. His lesson was so efficiently prepared and he kept my active 5 year old son totally engaged for the entire session. We look forward to our future appointments and feel confident that this is money well spent.

Lia was an AMAZING meditation teacher! She was calm, patient and very 'Zen' for our entire lesson, which really helped me to relax and calm down myself. Her instructions were easy to follow and I was able to achieve a deep level of relaxation normally absent from my meditations! Using the skills and techniques I learned from Lia, I now have a much easier time getting into 'the zone' every time I sit down to meditate :) thanks Lia!
Jonathan Goldstein
Really enjoyed my meditation lessons! I highly recommend.
Noreen H.
I enjoyed my lesson with Lia very much. I am very happy with the artwork I was able to produce at the lesson. I would highly recommend Lia to any new student.

Career guidance, acting technique, audition prep... After a decade in Hollywood, I know a thing or two about the CRAFT and BUSINESS of acting! I've booked over a DOZEN speaking roles on TV and Film (Comedy, Drama, and Improv,) I appear on national commercials yearly, and I've played voices in award-winning audiobooks. I am also a former NBA dancer & collegiate cheerleader!

A decade ago, I wish I had had someone to help me fill in the missing pieces.

What more can I do? What should I do differently?

I specialize in developing well-rounded, confident actors! I'd love to be that person for you! :)

5 Acting Warm Ups & Games to do Before an Audition

Being in the entertainment industry is not much different from being in the sports world. In addition to some natural talent and interest, a huge overlap with both industries is the time spent honing your craft. Of course regular practice is a necessary evil, but come race or audition day, our minds and bodies still need to be prepared for what’s about to happen. Just as we see athletes spending time stretching and warming up before a performance, it’s mandatory that actors warm up before …
