Dlites, if the lighting is low
Lethal tender
Boa coin bender
floating dollar bill/hummingbrid card, works great with low lighting
Throw Vansih, very visual and easy to do
Bite out coin
Dime and Penny/scotch and soda

Those all fit the conditions for a dance, and are what my friend used at another dance.

He said it was for next week. It is unlikely he can learn d-lites that fast.

Ok. I am an eighth grade teacher who has done eighth grade dances. Not the nice ones held at night, with the pretty ribbons, but the hot, humid, smelly affairs, with a throbbing rap beat, held during the last period of the day. My suggestion is that you do the tricks that you already know how to do.

Anyway, I usually do a full cups and balls routine, sponge balls, and a lot of card tricks. The noise is a problem, since I just set up in the back somewhere and do it during the dance, and the humidity is a problem, but you can really learn about audience management when you deal with a pile of 12-14 year olds completely surrounding you. I lean towards on cards: Dayley's Last Trick, Color Monte, Twins, Jumping Gemini, various versions of Triumph, That's It, Whack the Pack, Las Vegas Leaper, Card Warp, Bizzar Twist, etc. Mostly quick and easy to follow (although Twins is not easy with the noise.)

Try to get some effects that don't require alot of talking, because most likely they won't be able to hear you. At least if the dances are anything like the ones I used to go to.

I dont like doing bite out quarters in crowded areas. some times i bring it to school and have a maximum risk of exposure. usually some one will be behind you or something and be like hey i saw how you did that and then theyll tell the person your doing the trick for.

He's knew here. What's that patronising opinion got to do with anything?

I too wouldn't mind knowing what you did do at the dance? How did it go?
I know it was about a month ago, but I'm just curious how you found it?

How did the "school dance" ever get into the "Restaurant" forum?
