I have been so impressed by Trixie Bond's ability to explain how a Kid Show should work. So many of us do birthday parties but we don't really have any connection with the masters of the craft who can tell us how to put on the best possible show.
I had a chance to see Trixie at the SCAM and her lecture was so practical, I almost felt like paying the registration fee again.
If you do kid show stuff, check her out. If you're interested in doing magic that connects with your audience, check her out. If you want to do hippity hop rabbits and blow some balloons, don't worry about it.
Just my thoughts. She should get some props. Plus, I understand she'll be at the Castle in February.
