Charles Bach is a magician, dancer, illusionist and escape artist. A genuine, contagious enthusiasm makes the audience feel they are part of the magic as Charles transforms a theater into a magical place, filled with joy and wonder.
Charles started doing magic when he was 8 years old after his uncle showed him a card trick. He figured out how to do it and performed the trick the next day for his family. Growing up as a kid, Charles’ life was full of magic and creativity. He built stages and props out of cardboard boxes, floated balls around his room, made puppets from socks, and trained a white dove called ‘Dove Henning’ and a fluffy rabbit ‘Houdini’ to travel and perform at thousands of birthday and Christmas parties.
At 12, Charles started taking dance and acting to help him on stage. His years of ballet, modern and jazz dance training gave him a unique opportunity to study dance at Joffrey Ballet in New York, St. Louis Ballet and Cleveland Ballet. He also performed in musical comedies and plays. In his Wonders Show you will not see Charles doing his tricks in white tights, but you will watch him blending magic, dance and theater like no other magician in the world.
Throughout all his theatrical training and dance performing experiences, Charles continued to perform magic shows, study magic books and create his own original illusions. Eager to perfect his skills and talents, he began performing at Caesar’s Magical Empire in Las Vegas.
