Do the Dancing cane require special conditions (lighting etc.)?
Is it possible to do this effect during a kids show when the children sit very close to you?

The Dancing Cane is more of a stage effect. It's not something that you could do close-up. Yes. Lighting is a factor with this trick.

how much important is the lighting?
Do this trick must be done under special conditions or it can be done in a normal room?

No.
I do kids shows and I think about buying this trick.

Is it possible to do this effect during a kid show in a normal room and when you close to the audience?

Unless they are visually impaired, no.

Get the dancing wand instead. From the reviews that I've heard about it, you can be closer up without exposing the method, and I'm sure it could work for your situation.

You're not going to do the dancing cane closeup. You just won't get away with it. The wand is a much better choice.

Depends on your surroundings.

Again, it's a STAGE effect. Not a closeup or parlor effect. If you had very specific conditions, you may be able to get away with 10 feet. But it's highly unlikely. Think in terms of high-school auditoriums or similar.
