Greetings One & All...

Just wondering if any of you know if Dal Salwak is still operating the Chavez School of Magic in California. I've done several searches...but no real info is coming up. Any leads would be appreciated. Thank you all...and continued success.

Dale Salwak like the owners before him, only occassionally promote the Chavez Course in Magic. I think I read someplace that the course is now on CD.

With the McBride Tapes and DVD along with Sheridan and others now being marketed. The course is of little use, as it only explained basically an act with coins, cards, cigarettes, and thimbles. It also included a very basic dove production from newspaper.

It is only good if you are willing to go for personal instructions. Last I heard it is 22 weeks, all at your own expense.

I have the old booklet course and my diploma signed by Dale. I started under Marion Chavez and have studied under the late Neil Foster as well. At the time in the 1960's it was the only place to get the info for a manipulation act.

The video cassette recorder changed all that.
