Carnivals and Fairs
Dante was just wonderful! the kids (5 years old) were riveted and laughing every minute. My birthday girl felt like a million bucks and had so much fun. The parents were thoroughly entertained!.
Dante was super professional and easy to work with, showed up early, set up easily. I was surprised that he had a sound system outdoors (battery operated).
The show was just magnificent. Mostly his way with kids. It was very age appropriate. The friend who recommended him and was at this party said he had a different show for the 7 year olds he saw him at.
he also surprised Lia with an over the top gift at the end :)
Highly highly recommend!
I would recommend Dante to ANYONE. He was SO AMAZING! He came to my house for my daughters 10th birthday party and had the entire crowd of kids and adults in amazement with his cool tricks and funny jokes. Seriously, we are all enamored and laughing the whole time. His props are the best and he even comes with a huge curtain backdrop, sound effects, etc. I would hire him again in a heartbeat for kids of all ages AND for adults. He's as good as they come!!!!
Thank you so much, Dante for the incredible Magician show! The kids and everyone at school loved and they are keeping talking about how real and how good the magic show is. Everyone were enjoyed every bit of it. You came to the school early to check-in everything before your magnificent show start. Very professional. My son was thrilled to see your performance.
This is the second time we've booked Dante, he is a fabulous performer. Had the kids (from 5 to 17) in stitches or enthralled the whole time. Professional, on time, flexible, a pleasure to work with. A great guy with a wonderful sense of humor that even appeals to adults and older kids. Was the highlight of our party, kids are still talking about him. We will definitely bring him back next year!!!!
The kiddos had a blast, all 20+ of them! Dante was funny and had a few surprises for kids of all ages up his sleeve. Very suitable for 4y.o. kids and older. My birthday girl got a chance to participate in the show, some of interactions were personalization to her. Balloon unicorn - "...this is the best balloon, I've ever had..." - an unexpected bonus.
On the professional/organization side: good communication prior to the party, on-time arrival, flexibility. Dante knows the kids parties and advised us on best sequencing of activities.
Dante was exceptional as he made our son's family of five laugh on their special day. We live in another state and wanted to deliver a personal message of happiness to the family - Dante made it happen - everyone was very impressed with his performance!
We hosted our annual Take Your Child to Work event and Dante was the afternoon headliner. He kept the 50+ kids and parents engaged and fully entertained. He's really good with the kids-keeping their attention while making sure they don't take control of his show. He was quick to respond, was on time for the day of the event, and needed little assistance for setting up/breaking down. We'll definitely be adding him to future line ups. Thank you, Dante.
Dante made it so easy for us. Communication was easy and clear, he set up (and dismantled) quickly and efficiently, and he delivered a wonderfully entertaining show for our group of 10 year olds. He engaged the audience well and had us all wondering how he pulled off his tricks. It was all good fun and very well done. I highly recommned this pleasant and talented man.
Sadly, I could not attend, but the buzz the next day told me our students Loved Dante...we will get him again, and GigSalad, thanks for the help!
We hired Dante for our daughter's 6th birthday, and he was a hit! The children loved him; the grownups loved him--Dante had everyone laughing and cheering with delight. My daughter has watched a video from Dante's show a bunch of times in that last few days, and each time she has gotten the giggles--so cute!
Dante did an excellent job at our school carnival. The kids really enjoyed his stilt walking and were amazed by his magic tricks. We would definitely use him again!
Magic Dante came and performed at my son's 9th birthday party this past weekend and he was a HUGE hit!! From the time we exchanged emails to the day of the party, Dante was extremely easy to communicate with, and not only answered my questions but also made some very helpful suggestions. His performance was very entertaining for kids and adults, and his enthusiasm and energy was infectious. My son was thrilled with the balloon dragon Dante made especially for him.
I highly recommend Dante for your next event!
Dante gave a great performance at my son’s birthday Party, he has a great spirit, good energy and kept all the kids amazed with big smiles at all times! He’s very talented and professional.
We definitely recommend Dante’s Magic show!
Thank you Dante for making my son’s birthday full of smiles and special! 😊
Dante brings everything you would expect from a children's magic show. It is interactive, captivating and really entertaining, with lots of seamlessly delivered tricks. We invited Dante for our son's birthday party. Kids and adults alike enjoyed the show enormously.
We hired Dante to perform at our Community Purim Party. We had a large crowd mixed ages and all were equally entertained by Dante! If there was a 6th star available on Gig Salad, it would have his name on it. His magic skills are amazing and his performance style engaged the entire audience. Love his professional backdrop, stage professional and automated sound system he brings along. For days I have heard various folks from the party mention something he did or said that they are still laughing about or were amazed by! I can't wait to have him come again for another event. He's a rock star and such a pleasure to deal with!
Top notch! Dante entertained our company party where employees and their children (ages 2-12) were invited. The families enjoyed Dante’s perplexing magic tricks and fun show. Jokes along the show were clever and clean but funny for adults as well. The show was fast paced, perfect length with good tricks. He was flexible, and took initiative to switch things around when the timeline got out of whack due to late arriving guests. He was also a good balloon twister with quality balloons!
Dante is the best entertainer I've seen. He targets the adults and the kids this is my third time watching him perform and I still think he's funny! My son was so excited to have him for his birthday party. He's easy to work with, responsive, and on time. Very highly recommended!
Dante is amazing! He was captivating, caring and surpassed all expectations. A truly seasoned and polished professional, bounding with positive energy and determined to engage his audience. He accepted the challenge to perform at a center for disabled seniors. Not only did he keep them awake - he had them laughing and left them with a sparkle in their eyes! The staff was blown away. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat!
My party of all ages were amazed at his performance. Definitely going to hire him again.
DANTE was an exceptionally fun and talented magician! We couldn't be happier with his show! He performed for our 8 year old's birthday party, for about 45 kids and parents, and had everyone smiling and amazed from start to finish. His tricks were flawless, he had a fun and appealing personality, just spot on in all ways. Kids were engaged, laughing, surprised and impressed with each magic trick. He included a few volunteers from the audience, especially the birthday boy, which my son loved. Parents were impressed, amused, and amazed as well! It was indeed a magical night for everyone. I am happy to give him my highest recommendation, he is professional, friendly, and talented. A true class act!
DANTE...... is the best kids and adults all ages loved him he came prepared with many many tricks! and kept the crowd laughing. This was for out community event and it was a great success!
We loved our magic show. It was a wonderful experience for children and the adults. He made our son's 7th birthday celebration one that we will always remember!
WOW! I had Dante come to a birthday party for my 3 children (who all have birthdays in March) they and their friends are 7, 11 & 13. He was amazing and exceeded my expectations. He was prompt, even let me know he was in rout. He was not only very personable, wonderful with the kids and adults (up to 80 yrs old) but funny and very tidy! He had the crowd of 40 some odd people totally mesmerized. I would recommend him to anyone. Heck I'm ready to see his show again!
This was a holiday Company Christmas Party. The range of ages for the children was from 9 mo to 14 years. Dante did a wonderful job involving and entertaining all. Of course the adults enjoyed the show as well. Dante was amazing. He ended the show by making balloon animals for the children. Everyone was all smiles.
We were very pleased with Dante's performance at our children's Halloween Party. There was a wide range of ages from 6-14 yrs. and everyone had a smile on their face. He was particularly good at getting everyone engaged and involved in the show. He provided good communication in the planning stages and was prompt on the day of the show.
Dante came to our daughter's first birthday party! He was right on time, extremely professional. Well prepared- brought speakers for outdoor show. Our daughter was so entertained as well as all the guests young and adults. Hire him for your party- you won't regret it! He's definitely worth it!
Really. So great. Dante performed my son's 5th birthday party this weekend. We had ~20 children there and Dante had them mesmerized and laughing for almost an hour. (20 five-six year olds, mostly boys, and some girls, sitting still that long is really impressive!) Perfect balance of getting all of the kids involved and doing magic that impresses. Dante was also 100% professional in the lead up in terms of booking, timing etc. It totally made the party. Thank you Dante. You impressed children and parents alike.
He performed at a father daughter event at our school and did a fantastic job. He kept all of the daughters and dads entertained throughout the show.
Really just fantastic. Had the party last Saturday and that are still talking about it this week at school- that's the kids AND the grown ups. One of the kids going through the lunch line yesterday said "You know, your party was really funny! I really liked that magician". Just wonderful, and sweet. LOL is no joke... adults and kids both! My daughter said "I never want to have a jumpy house again, I want Dante to come every year!"
We just hired Dante for our son's 4th Birthday!
Not only kids had fun but growing up too!
My son is still talking about it, and their friends too.
He did an amazing show, he was really great with the kids.
He started with a magic show then a very small break which allowed us to blow candles and eat the cake, then he did some balloons twisting. He did even some extra ones to avoid any drama :)
All parents told me they had a really good time and it was a great show!
Other than that, it was really easy to communicate with Dante. He is fast answering e-mails and questions. He was on time and reliable, and compare to other not expensive!
I would hire him again for sure!
Dante is a wonderful performer. He is funny (for kids and adults), talented and personable. He has a great rapport with children of all ages and backgrounds. Dante kept a group of 80 ethnically diverse pre-school kids engaged for almost 45 minutes. His magic tricks enthralled them, and his personality won them over. I highly recommend Dante for any occasion.
Dante did a magic show and balloons for my son's first bday. The party was a success because of the show. He was awesome with the kids and they were into it. He did a good job of tailoring his act to the age group. I would hire him again or recommend him in a heart beat. Even the adults were very engaged.
We had Dante at our house for the birthday party of my 7 year old daughter, and he was everything we were looking for in a magician. He was funny, engaging, entertaining, and full of magic! The kids were enjoying every minute of the show. He asked my daughter to help him with a few tricks and that was one of the best parts! He made her feel like a true magician and the audience was simply amazed!!! He is a spectacular magician and I will definitely ask him to join us again next year!!!
My parents were magicians when I was growing up, so I am super picky about my magic shows. Dante was not just a magician, but a fantastic children's performer. His humor carried the tricks, though they could stand alone. I would bring him back in a heartbeat! He also customized the show to meet my camps' theme of the week. I still don't know how he did the egg trick! :)
Dante come and entertained our guests for our wedding. He was a huge success and brought so many smiles and laughter to everyone there. It has been 3 weeks now and our friends are still talking about the balloon creations and the tricks that he performed. He was very professional and entertaining. We are very happy that he was there and we highly recommend Dante and will definitely use him again for our future events. He was such a highlight for our wedding that we already have friends requesting him to do their events. Thank you Dante!
Thank you so much for a fabulous magic show yesterday! All of the kids had an absolute BLAST, and you could definitely say the same for my husband, myself, and the rest of the adults! My son loved pulling the string out of your mouth and my daughter loved "floating" in the air. Truly, you were fabulous and everyone only had positive things to say. You really made my son's birthday party special, and we will never forget it.
Dante amazed both young and old at my 6 year olds birthday party. He kept us engaged and at the edge of our seats. We had approximately 25 kids (mostly 6 year olds). Both kids and parents commented on how amazing he was. I highly recommend his show!
Dante was not rushed, created a comfortable environment and connects well with kids.
We had the pleasure of having Dante for our sons 6 year old birthday party. He was awesome, great with kids of all ages, and very professional. My son said "it was the best birthday party ever!" His balloons were the most amazing balloons we have ever seen. Thank you for a great show!!
Dante did an exceptional job going above and beyond entertaining all of the kids and all of the adults! I would HIGHLY recommend Dante, especially since he made all of the kids happy and made limitless amounts of awesome balloon designs for the kiddos!
Dante performed the Super Show for my twins' 5th birthday party. I have a boy and a girl with fairly different preferences, but they were both equally entertained and were roaring with laughter, marveling at the magic and spellbound by the incredibly intricate balloon creations (as were the parents!) Worth every penny - would hire again!
We hired Dante for a Halloween party we had in our office for our employees' kids. Dante was very easy to work with, leading up to our event. On the day of the party, Dante was great with the kids. He was engaging, entertaining, and awesome! The balloon creations were impressive and the magic show was a hit! He even stayed after the event, making balloons, so all kids left happy! Thanks, Dante!!
We recently had Dante performed at our daughter 11 th Birthday Party. He was fantastic. The kids love him. Thank you for the great show.
Dante was what made my son's party a hit. His balloons and magic were definitely entertaining. He actually made each child 2 balloons of their choice, did magic tricks which were impressive even to adults, and he had his own music, too. He arrived on time was entertainment I would hire again!!!
Nothing but fabulous! We had Dante for a spring carnival, and everyone loved what Dante could do. He was on time, profesional, and ever more caring with the kids. Parents were pleased, but the kids smiles, said it all. We hope to have Dante back for next year's event.

What to Expect
Dante's shows are sophisticated, silly, and full of visual magic sure to keep your guests fully engaged. Dante provides a complete interactive theatrical experience that will be the highlight of your event.
Dante was born to be a magician. As a child, his father built props for professional touring magicians out of the workshop in their New York home. At ten, Dante began studying his art at the world famous "Tannen's Magic Camp". By twelve, he could be seen handing out his business card and performing at local community events.
His passion to perform led him to study theater at New York University's prestigious Tisch School of the Arts. After moving to California, Dante's work expanded into television, commercials and print. He was cast to play himself on the Emmy nominated television show "Hip Hop Harry" that aired on the Discovery Kids network. In 2013, Dante was awarded San Francisco's Performer of the Year by RAW, an international independent art organization.
Now living in the Bay Area, Dante continues to enjoy bringing magic to events nationwide.

Dante did an AMAZING job with my nephew's 7th birthday / Halloween party. We had over 40 kids and he managed to keep them entertained with his magic tricks and awesome balloon art. Even the adults were impressed!! Dante showed up on time and was very professional throughout the party. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
We had Dante for my son's 7th birthday party. He arrived exactly on time. The kids were so happy with his silly stunts and we were all impressed with the balloon twisting he did. it's like No balloon twisting we've ever seen before ! Pure art.
He didn't leave before he made sure that each kid had his balloon.
I think we will all remember this party for years to come.
I am a rabbi and Jewish education director at a synagogue in SF. Dante ran and performed in our Purim Circus several years in a row. I work with kids all the time and I can honestly say that Dante is a wiz with kids. He had them mesmerized with his tricks and his schtick. He also knows how to put together a fantastic circus with unusual acts that are truly entertaining for all ages (including adults). You will want to book him in as far in advance as you can because his schedule fills up quickly.
