Alright, there is an appearing Dancing Cane. I may sound stupid but, is there a vanishing cane as well? I have some great ideas to end the dancing cane routine with a vanishing cane. As you reach the end of your routine, the cane vanishes into a silk streamer or you vanish into your top hot, etc...

Try a Fantasio disappearing cane, and you might try the Fantasio gimmick for dancing. I must warn you however that if there are any items that will be appearing as a result of the vanish of the cane, it may throw the cane off weight and make it extreemly difficult to perform the dancing. Also, it appears that if you intend to perform both the Appearing Dancing Cane and a cane that you can transform, then I believe you are going to have to exchange canes. I may be wrong! But most of what you were talking about performing is taught in the Fantasio Books about 35 years or so ago, If you need the resource.

David,

Just wanted to say publicly this is a superb DVD. I like the 'short' teaching of each move. 1 at a time, so that you're not overwhelmed, like in so many other DVDs.

Thanks Rick,
I just wish everyone could see the DVD. My sole goal was to help magicians move their skills along so that there may be a new generation performing this trick.

Angela,

I would advise getting David's cane too, as I did. The one I have can do most of the moves, but it seems with the new design of his cane, the moves come much easier.

And just wait until you get the DVD and see the whole performance, WOW. Now I wish I were a dancer LOL

Thanks for the advice Rick; I agree that the new design sounds pretty darn good. Ooh, and I can't wait to see the whole performance! 17 moves, right? That sounds like enough to keep me busy for a while.

Angela,
Thanks, for the compliments. I think if you really pay attention to the DVD you will find that there are more than the 17 moves that are taught. There are hidden moves that are meant to be found only by the astute performer of this art. By the way I think you will be satisfied with this cane!

I switched last summer to Losander's Floating Broom and I've never looked back! It is muc larger than the standard cane which has 2 big benefits. The first is that it is more visible and works better for a stage routine. The second and more important benefit to me is how it moves. It's larger size makes it possible to make it move much more slowly. It's very hypnotic. It's beautifully made, but quite fragile. I'm on my second broom due to a slight accident when my assistant tripped while packing after a show. I was able to patch it up enough to use as a practice broom, but it wasn't performance worthy after that spill. I guess a third benefit for me was that I found the broom to be more easily motivated for my character. I don't dress like a "traditional" magician and the cane just always looked so goofy in my hands. It never made any sense. The broom has an old handmade look to it, which works well for a tale of witchcraft or a Harry Potter theme. Anyone who is a serious student of the dancing cane would REALLY enjoy manipulating one of these. I still love practicing with my cane, but the moves feel even better with the broom. Just an alternative idea.

David,

By 'hidden' moves, I assume you mean the ones that aren't taught, but can be learned by watching your moves with the taught moves.

If so, then, yes, I've picked up one or two that way.

Very cool David... it's like how Hollingworth slips in a few things here and there for people who actually bother to read every single part of his book. Smile

Angela and Ricker,
Your both right and your the first magicians to actually figure it out! Ta Da! By the way, Levitator you might take a look at the DVD there is something new for everyone who loves Dancing Cane or dancing anything for that matter!

Dmann, loved the video! You are so smooth and the cane fits your character perfectly! You showed some really creative alternative moves that I've never even thought about trying with the broom. The around the world move while taking your hat off was beautiful. That was my fiancee's favorite part of the routine. The production on the video was very classy also. I will be picking up the DVD next week when I get back home! The demo video alone gave me plenty to think about. Great stuff!

Dancing Cane is very good trick for the whole body!
You must control your hands and your body when the cane is floating, this is very important.
I make my own Dancing Cane and use very good thr*d.
The same as McBride 'Gutterman'.
Very solid and very strong.
