The registration fee covers ALL of the following:
Continental breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday (Coffee and beverages will be available).
The Jazz Mentalism Workbook, seminar notes, CDs of relevant writings (including exclusive new materials and presentations prepared especially for the workshop), and all required physical materials for the hands-on sessions.
By registering to the event, all participants agree to keep exclusive materials confidential. They may not be copied, shared or distributed in any manner. Attendees, however, are granted full performance rights, including television, to original routines and handlings taught in the Workshop.
BONUS UPDATES 1 and 2:
1) We have already added a surprise special guest presenter.
2) Every mentalist who performs Q & A audiences knows that nothing else comes as close to real mind reading. Nothing has more impact on an audience or is more memorable. This is why Q & A and billet work are the heart of mentalism.
For those of who who plan on attending the 2010 Jazz Mentalism Workshop in April, we are working on adding something special. However, we wanted to make sure that this bonus would not cut into our workshop time, so it will take place on Thursday (4/22) night (in addition to the meet and greet).
What is the bonus? We are also trying to arrange for Bob Cassidy to actually perform his live show before a real audience. (Of course, registrants will be able to attend free.) Cassidy will do his act and you will see the power of Q & A firsthand.
You will get to see it in action in a way that has been unavailable anywhere else and hasn't been shared with the fraternity before.
In addition to the wealth of information provided during the workshops, this added bonus will function as a touchstone for discussions. Throughout the workshop Bob will be tipping the real work of Q & A.
When you attend this workshop, you are going to leave being able to perform one of the most powerful, awe-inspiring feats of mentalism. For close up, parlor or for stage, you will be able to put Q & A into your act with confidence.
