Balducci Levitation

The Balducci Levitation is an illusion that can be performed almost anywhere and anythime. It uses no wires, strings, rigs, camera tricks, etc.



Learn how to do the Balducci levitation in this simple tutorial!


This is a highly restrictive, angle sensitive trick. You have to practice your angles over and over to get used on them. One bad angle or position and the illusion is blown!


This picture at the right show you the audience point of view.

This figure shows the start of illusion. Stand about 10 feet away from the audience at a 45° backward angle ...





... you pause, and then slowly start to float (as shown in picture at the left). You rise 3 to 5 inches off of the ground before suddenly "crash" back down to the ground.








When performed corretly this is about as close to REAL MAGIC as you´d ever want to get!

Balducci Levitation - THE SECRET

All you do is pretend to float off of the ground while you tippee-toe on just one foot (the foot furthest from their view) as shown below. Believe it, or not, this looks great!! The small audience can´t see your supporting foot because it´s hidden by three things - your pants, the angle of the trick and your closest shoe (which hides their view of the foot being used to levitate you). You might only rise 3 or 5 inches off of the ground, but it´s all in the presentation! You will want to slowly rise off of the ground, wait just one or two second and then drop fast.
Stay up too long and they will probably figure it out.


This is what the Balducci Levitation looks like during performance. The position on the left is the start of the illusion. Position on the right shows the climax of the levitation.

Actually it sucks to see magic tricks being revealed to the public. If everyone knows them you'll never be able to see the astonished faces of people again.

Remember that there are very few people who go online looking for magic tricks.......You'll still see the astonished look on your audiences face

I don't know how old Mr. Sleezy is, but the younger generation does go online to find ALL their information and the way the links work find more then they even started out looking for. So yeah, it is a shame that such a creative art form that was once only shared among its practitioners is being sold out. (and not even to the highest bidder)
