Often those new to magic will want a magic trick that is, "Easy to do, cheap, can be done close-up or on stage, and is amazing." Few tricks have those properties. "Dances with Coins" is close. This routine gives the impression one has great skill. The performer must learn one basic move. That move is then repeated in various ways. While not exactly easy to do, the move is not difficult. As in most effects, the work is in mastering the steps of presentation. The routine consists of producing a coin, making it magically jump from here to there in several ways, and finally disappearing. Twenty-five magical events can occur in about a minute of performance. The props consist of a silk handkerchief and a silver dollar. The magic component can be purchased at a hardware store and costs a few dollars. A way to do this routine impromptu is discussed. However, for those that are serious, this routine can be dressed up with sound to be a stunning effect. An appropriate sound track can be put on a digital recorder and played in a breast pocket. For those that are in to theatrics, this routine could be expanded to a little dance with a coin and done to music on a full stage. Those with imagination will excel. The author developed this routine while working in a coffee shop and performed it there often. Note: To see all Al Schneider books; use the following key words in a search, "Al Schneider Magic."
