Magic Community

School of Magic Arts is a whole community of real magicians. From beginner to advanced, our students support and learn from one another, as well as their instructors. At SOMA, we're all excited about magic, and we love to share.

Beyond YouTube

There are tons of resources out there on how to perform tricks, but School of Magic Arts encourages our magicians to go beyond YouTube. SOMA magicians are special. They create unique magic, develop a style, and get immediate class feedback from their friends and teachers.

Magic is Changing

The world around us is changing, and we believe magic needs to change, too. Magic is strongest when it includes all gender identities, races, ethnicities, orientations, physical or mental abilities, and perspectives. At School of Magic Arts, we know that there is no one person that typifies "a magician."  We strive to build an inclusive culture that encourages, supports, and celebrates the diverse voices of our students, families, and audiences. We believe that anyone who wants to perform magic should be able to do just that in a safe, empowering, and inclusive environment. Welcome to SOMA. You belong, here.
