Saw this for the first time.

This is one of the most beautiful levitations I have ever seen (second only to David Copperfield's "Flying").
Not only did the assistant levitate, but she circled around the magician's body, at waist height, passing through a hoop at the same time. No way!

It's been around for a while and Copperfield and Brett Daniels also use it if I am right.
Very graceful I must say.

I have done it too. Great for TV but difficult angles for a live show, unless the whole show is yours.

Have you seen Lance Burton's "Secrets of Magic" Levitation as a comparison? (Great DVD for $5)

He does the best levitaion I've seen (Didn't see Pendragons) outside of Cooperfield. He make it believeable.

I use a round the body levitation, and for the last 6 months performed with people on 3 sides on a dance floor with people 3 foot away, granted it couldn't go the full 360 degrees around so we just did 90 degrees to either side and then back to the front but still to very good effect and the angles didn't cause a problem. excellent effect!

I know how this effect works but I'm amazed at the smoothness that Copperfield pulled it off with.

Lighting is critical (seems to me anyway) and this has to be practiced alot.

I saw a pic on Brett Daniels site of him using perhaps the same levitation over a bed of fire- it looked exotic and beautiful!

Brett Daniels is starting to become a favourite of mine.

I really don't care that much for Brett Daniels, but that's just my opinion......

The history of this levitation is quite interesting. It was actually invented by Bev Bergeron and first used on one of Mark Wilson's shows. Mark decided that having Nani move around horizontally during the levitation did not add anything to the levitation, so he left that part out!

Any "top" illusion builder could make one for you.

Just my 2˘ worth here, but IMHO, Brett Daniels is one of magic's seriously under-rated performers working today! I don't know him personally, but the guy seems to have so much going for him: good looks, talent, personality, showmanship, and some really well worked out routines.

I invite you to check out his website, and review the many streaming video selections available for download:
