“I can not thank you enough for your assistance with my act. What you were able to do in 30 minutes of working with me is amazing. The difference you made in my show, the changes you were able to present and the ideas you were able to impart are tremendous. Am still not over how great you are at what you do! The lecture was amazing.”

Her notes are precise and exceptionally useful for improving an act.Joanie’s ability to constructively critique the acts in a way that makes performers feel at ease and receptive to new ideas, is a real gift.”Anyone who takes her workshop will not only learn invaluable information, they will come away with major improvements to their work.”

“Joanie Spina has a heart that is as big as her abilities and experience. She imparted a wealth of theatrical knowledge to our teenage magicians in special workshops and inspiring lectures for our magician attendees at theWorld Magic Seminar. We also hold her in very high regard as a judge in our teenage magic competitions. She is simply the very best.”

“I don’t know of anyone who can teach the fundamentals of stagemanship like Joanie Spina. She teaches what magicians need to know! Timing,, movement, stage deportment, acting and more!” Magicians have enough tricks, and what them need is the theatrical fundamentals to make their act professional. That’s why she has been selected to be one of the talent judges for World Magic Seminar for years!”
- Joe Stevens , Stevens Magic Emporium
“Your lecture was fantastic, insightful and thoughtful.I’m grateful I had the opportunity to take part as part of it. Your notes were top-notch and I can hardly wait to put them into action._
“Without a doubt, I enjoyed every minute of your presentation and advice and confidence at Marc DeSouza’s on May 4. “AMAZING” is a word that comes to mind about you!!
You were so smart to choose the videos of people who brought out the problems of “presenting” and you had solutions everyone in your audience could take to heart. And, do better in their own Magic acts.
The gentleman named Steve (I think) took your direction about removing his glasses and having a forceful moment with the audience as soon as he walked onstage. His immediate “CHANGE” meant all the difference. You could see and feel his confidence soaring, thanks to you. “
“Thanks for coming to the Mingus Magic Shop. My wife Kelly and i had a wonderful time. Folks, Joanie is the REAL deal. She has amazing talent and shares a wealth of information you simply can not put a price tag on. ”
