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.

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
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.

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.

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
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.

Get all of Dani’s material. It’s all great, and this is no exception.
Here are 3 reasons
1. Watching Dani is inspirational. You’ll be fooled and inspired
2. Dani teaches
theory in a way that anyone can understand, and it’s genuinely useful to all performers.
genuinely funny and entertaining.

Thank you Dani. The material in this video, and all of Dani's work for that matter, will help all
of us become better at our craft. Not only the routines, which are great, but the further look
behind the curtain into Dani's thought process. Highly recommended.

The tricks Dani teaches are uniformly great. In his hands, they're miracles. The best thing about
this live, though, is the insight into why he does everything he does. Take that to heart, and they
can become miracles in your hands as well.
I will use the ACAAN, the freshest version of it I have seen in years. The Cards Across is also
extremely exciting. Mr. DaOrtiz not only teaches you how to perform these effects, but also the how
and the why of every single move. Unbelievable lecture, with a ton of material in it that you will
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.
