He has balls... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 25th, 2014
OK. This one is a bit more basic than some of the other lessons for those of us more advanced or studied performers. However for you guys/gals that don't do Sponge Ball work or Cups and Balls this will be a great primer. And some of us in the know will probably pick up a thing or two from Dan's performance. That is what is really the most important part in this lesson. I actually got involved in Dan's performance so much that I missed a lot of Dan's steals with the Sponge Balls. That was a nice surprise for me. He had a very compelling and fun performance. I also got a nice new addition for an opening sequence for Sponges so that is another bonus. All in all this is a great lesson and you will learn some very good routines if you don't have much experience with ball routines. As always have fun. :)

Good for the Price but…. Report this review

This is ok for the price, its has nice routines to own, but its basically all the stuff most people already know. Dan Harlan's routine is great, but I'm not planning to use it. You might! I recommend buying it if you are new to ball magic.

Not What's In Tarbell Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 17th, 2017
Though Dan's routines are terrific as always, those routines are not what is described in Tarbell. This is especially true of the cups and balls routine. Dan does a standard C&B routine. However, Tarbell describes something very different, using sponge balls (cut-up bath sponges), which are central to the handlings described in Tarbell. I was disappointed, as I was hoping t see what that old and different routine looked like on video.

Great Lesson Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 22nd, 2020
In this lesson I´ve found a motivation to practice properly some of the basic moves...and a lot of very good ideas how to spice up my cups and balls routines. Great lesson!

Nice but thin Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 8th, 2020
Solid routines for an impromptu cups and balls, basic sponge ball routine, and object under a hat -- with sponge balls under that first like a Benson bowl routine. There's another routine at the end, but only the final load handling is useful for that one. I says this is thin, because relative to later lessons, this is short, with not a lot of magic and what is there is very basic. Dan often adds more than he does in this lesson.

Well explained Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 2nd, 2020
The video explains the use to cups and balls and sponge balls very clearly. Also shows you how to perform so that the effects are successful.

Great basics and teaching Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 3rd, 2019
To be honest Ban Harlan’s performance style is not cup of tea BUT his teaching is always excellent. These Tarbell courses are not for advanced magicians. If you’re advanced, especially in the area of teaching you probably know a large portion of the info. Dan does give some performance tips and if you’ve not ever done the type of magic being taught they are great introductions.

This particular video gives a good intro routine for cups and balls without a wand needed, some sponge ball routines and a paper ball routine. So you don’t learn “tricks” you learn some usable material.

Really great routines. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 14th, 2017
It's a great instructional as always from Dan, while the routines seem basic and will help beginners it will add to those that are not beginners and will be adding this to my routines.
