Dan the Magic Man

I am a retired elementary school teacher who has loved doing magic since the age of 9. In 1995 I took my show “on the road” and have been performing for a wide variety of audiences. Contact me to bring my 45 minute magic  show, designed specifically for seniors, to your facility or event! I promise you lots of humor, and I finish with a live bunny!

**I am based in Salem but travel throughout the Portland/Vancouver area and Mid-Willamette Valley.

Words of praise for Dan the Magic Man:

“I want to say (Dan the Magic Man) was very entertaining and all our residents loved him and his tricks. He was very interactive and made real connections with the residents. We look forward to having him back!” Nate H., Life Enrichment Director, West Hills Health & Rehab


“Recently we had Dan The Magic Man perform at our facility for our Oktoberfest and our residents thoroughly enjoyed him. The coloring book trick had left a lot of us wondering! Also the kids of families loved the opportunity to participate. He has high energy in which our residents love!” Teresa S., Life Enrichment Director, Prestige Beaverton Hills Living Center


“Dan (the magic man) put on an impressive magic show for our Springs at Wilsonville Assisted/Memory Care community. He was energetic, comical and very engaging with our crowd. The residents have requested that we have him again in the near future!” Jessica J., Life Enrichment Director, The Springs at Wilsonville

“Dan was punctual and ready when expected and very kind. His show captivated my residents and they truly loved watching his magic unfold. His show was grown up and entertaining and still has that light, young at heart feeling you would expect out of a magic show. It was a pleasure to have him perform and I can’t wait to have him back. Thank you, Dan!” Stephanie P., Life Enrichment Director, Deerfield Village Assisted Living

“…Dan Burns performed a magic show for our residents. I found him to be very personable, engaging, humorous, and an excellent magician. He engaged our residents in the program, kept them interested, remembered their names, and was hugely entertaining. He told the group that he spent his career as a school teacher,
and his experience truly came across in his ability to hold the group’s attention and to get group members to join in and help with the program. I am still scratching my head at some of the amazing magic tricks he performed. I would not hesitate to book Dan Burns again. He was professional and friendly and even provided impromptu pet therapy with his pet rabbit, that he literally pulled out of his hat. It was an unusual and memorable hour of entertainment.” Chris N., Life Enrichment Director, Whitewood Gardens

“I wanted to leave a review for Dan the Magic Man. We had a fabulous show today. Dan was careful to include all of the residents. He allowed them to use the magic wand, hold the magic money, pet the rabbit and more. We’re anxious to have him return.” Kristi C., Park Place Assisted Living in Tigard

“Dan came to perform at our community last week. He was very clear about how much time he needed to set up, brought his own PA system, and was flexible when my residents weren’t quite ready to clear a space for him yet. Dan put on a fantastic show that entertained all of my folks. If you are an AD, you know that this is difficult to do! Especially with residents at different stages in their disease. Dan engaged one on one with almost every person there, and made everybody feel special. He even handled the occasional heckler with grace and humor. I am looking forward to booking Dan again for our community. Not only does he put on a great show, but he really seems to understand memory care and how to reach my residents where they are cognitively. A+!” Angela S., Life Enrichment Director at McLoughlin Place Senior Living, Oregon City

“Our residents absolutely loved Dan’s Magic Show! They are still raving about him and his rabbit he made magically appear at the end of his show. He is very involved with his audience with his magic tricks, having them participate with almost everything that he does. Dan has a great personality and is good at getting people upbeat for the show!” Randi G., Life Enrichment Coordinator, Redwood Heights Assisted Living in Salem

“Dan The Magic man was just great! I loved the way he could remember all of the residents names and he made them part of the show. I was very impressed.” Julia S., Activities, Silver Creek Assisted Living, Woodburn

“Just wanted to send this review of magician Dan Burns in. We had a huge crowd for Dan Burns and our residents loved him! His show was interactive, comical, and full of surprises. The residents gasped more than once at the magic tricks he performed and the best part of all was the bunny! He is wonderful with the residents and so easy to work with, everyone is already asking to have him back!” Laura M., Life Enrichment Coordinator, The Springs at Sunnyview

“I would like to give a review of Dan Burns, the magician. I had him come to my facility to perform for my senior citizens at Avamere Court at Keizer this week and he was wonderful! He was so enthusiastic and involved a lot of the residents in the magic acts, as well as getting them all to participate. They all had a really fun experience and even got a treat of some “magic” popcorn that he made and let them all taste! And of course, they all really loved the live bunny at the end. They all have requested that I have Dan back for another show!” Mandie K., Activity Director, Avamere Court at Keizer

“We recently had Dan/Magic Man do a show for the residents. He was very entertaining and interactive with them. They loved his show and the talk of the day was ‘is it a real bunny’. We will definitely have Dan return to entertain again.”  Jill B., Activities Director, Emerald Pointe Retirement, Keizer

“I would like to thank you for the wonderful magic show that you performed for our residents. Everyone was overjoyed at the appearance of your trusty sidekick, Wilbur The Little White Bunny. Where did he come from????? We look forward to having you again!” Gary K., Enrichment Coordinator, Hidden Lakes Retirement in Salem,Or
