"Simply super strong magic full of surprises!" - Juan Tamariz

"Dani is not only a product of the “Spanish School” of card magic, with masters such as Ascanio and Tamariz as his influences, he is also the product of the ethereal mixture of biology, psychology, stardust and unicorn tears that produces genius. Two of my favorite magicians were Albert Goshman and Del Ray. They had the ability to connect with an audience through their magic on a basic emotional level. There was an honesty in their work. Their ingenious methods, impeccable technique and their irresistible characters were intertwined to create a whole experience greater than the sum of it’s parts. I can think of few performers today who rise to that level. Dani is one. His performances seem spontaneous, his miracles real. An audience feels that they have been treated to a unique experience, not an over-rehearsed stale presentation. To watch him with a live audience is a lesson in what close up magic ought to be, an imitate shared experience of miracles and humanity. His casual style disguises his deep understanding of fundamental magic principles and applied psychology. Any student of magic, at any level would do well to pay close attention." - David Williamson

What will he teach?

Close-up Card Magic on the Table:

Chaotic Production

Imaginary Deck with Borrowed Deck

Cards Across with Thought of Card

ACAAN

Card in Bottle

And much more!

Who is he?

In performance, he seems to be the picture of complete nonchalance, even going out of his way to help randomize an already chaotic performance, yet miracles happen with the utmost, and ironically unexpected, regularity.

Everyone is talking about him. His methods are unique, his presentations brilliantly entertaining.

Incredible magic from one the world's most astonishing magicians… Dani DaOrtiz!

I know this review isn't that helpful for new buyers, but I would suggest all of you buy his/this material. This is no exception. This is one of the few lectures I watch start to finish, and that I will do so again. Watching him perform is a lecture worth a buncha money in itself.

Another great release by Mr DaOrtiz Report this review

Another great release from Dani. As Dani states, this is not his regular act but an act he made for this release. If you have Dani's other work, don't stress, you will still get something out of this one. The devil is in the details. Thanks Dani.

Organized Confusion Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 9th, 2019
A person watching this might think that Dani is just doing whatever comes to his mind and is not even sure that it will work. Underneath this is a very carefully constructed act by an incredibly talented individual.
You will have trouble with some of these things because you are not Dani. Look beyond that to the thinking and construction of the tricks. This is a master-class on "being the magic" instead of just doing tricks.

Como se dice 'Amazing'? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 5th, 2019
Dani DaOrtiz is so, so entertaining to watch. The downside to Dani's style in these lectures is that he requires many participants seated at a table. Some moves will be a challenge for those who do walk-around.

Thankfully, Dani did not create a routine for magicians, but laymen. The tricks were clear, entertaining, and magical. The best trick in this set for me was the ACAAN routine. Very deceptive.

The real value of the routine comes in the middle of this three hour presentation. The first third is the act itself. The last third is the explanations. But the middle third is where DaOrtiz teaches those aspects of magic that so few magicians can even verbalize. And he shares some profound lessons that he learned from some of the greatest names in Magic, from Leonard Green to Juan Tamariz himself.

This one didn't overly impress me but there are some clever card routines in the show. The Any Card AT routine is very very clever and usable and it the best part of the lecture in my opinion. I give it only 3 stars because 1 he is so awkward with his audience members during the show that it's uncomfortable to watch. I felt so sorry for the people that were seated next to him, especially the female. The lecture and explanation was equally as awkward to me, with poor Dan trying to move things along. An entire sequence of his show that involved a few effects was skipped over in the explanations. Clearly I'm in the minority, and to be fair I had never heard of the guy and just got this as part of my subscription, so maybe if you are used to his style you love him but he didn't win me over that's for sure. Compared to the other Live Acts, this one falls way short to me.

Good, but . . Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 25th, 2018
Obviously it's good, it's Dani DaOrtiz, but as a relative beginner, the teaching isn't ideal, he assumes we already know certain moves and so didn't bother to teach them - not helpful. As usual, there's a lot more going on than you'd think when watching the act, it's not as easy as he makes it look.
