Father and son magicians get serious about secrets!
The Night Academy
The Night Academy was founded by
world-renowned magician Nicholas Night.
Fresh out of high school, Nicholas started working in a local magic shop. He soon became an award-winning, world famous magician, and performed his illusion show, The Art & Illusion of Nicholas Night & Kinga, on stage and television in over 30 countries with featured appearances in the U.S. on ABC's Champions of Magic, Masters of Illusion, and Magic on the Edge television specials.
In addition to a full-time career in magic, for over ten years Nicholas worked as an executive in animation and gaming, creating and pitching original gaming, film and television concepts to top studios and networks such as Disney, MGM, Nickelodeon, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, NatGeo, PBS Kids and Cartoon Network.
So what led him to start a mail-order magic school?
Nicholas says, "Teaching magic and sleight-of-hand to my 9yr. old son Jackson and his friends made me realize that "kid magic" - the kind you get in every magic set - was basically synonymous for "bad magic". Not only are the props inferior, the methods taught are poor and grossly underestimate children's capabilities. I decided to create professional quality, STEM-based magic training for kids that builds their confidence, enhances their critical thinking, improves manual dexterity, and most important of all, COMPLETELY fools the grown-ups!"
