What are the key elements of a great performance?

Elements of a Good Performance

Being a magician, you have a lot to live up to, right?
"Come on show us a trick."
This is probably one of the expressions you'll hear the most, as I know I have. But if magic means as much to you as it does to me, then I'm sure you'll swing this the other way around. Instead of them asking to see a trick, you should perform magic without announcing it. That way you will be seen as a magician, not just a person who knows a good trick or two.

"The power of performance" is definitely a useful ability in establishing an inspiring and powerful act. There are many aspects that bind
together to create such an outcome. These are techniques and preparation tips to create a more powerful and meaningful act, but don't expect to get this straight away. I am learning about this myself, through trial and error, and I'd like to share some of these with you.

1. Theme/Image
2. Preparation
3. Practice
4. Movements and choreography
5. Projected feelings/emotions

The five elements labeled above represent my idea of creating a powerful act. These are the exact steps I take when creating an act. In fact in the recent past I have changed my act around several times just trying to find "the right mix." For information on these specific elements, please see the individual tips bearing their names.
