KIDabra International is a place for KIDshow and family performers to grow, learn, network and prosper!
Interestingly the Association which launched in August 2005, grew out of the remarkable KIDabra conference which began in 1992 as The International Festival of Children's Magicians. Our mission with this Association is to carry on the inspiration, enthusiasm and education of KIDabra throughout the year.
Often called the professional performer's association and conference, you will not find tons of politics here. You will find an intermediate to advanced focus on our performing arts, businesses and careers. Whether you are a full time pro, busy part-timer or new to performing, you'll find a network of people just like you that exists no where else.
KIDabra International is an extraordinary group of folks headed by Mark and Tami Daniel, dedicated to setting and raising the bar on Family Entertainment. Many of the world's top KIDshow performers roll up their sleeves on a daily basis to make this remarkable project/association and conference happen. We are first and foremost a group focused on the art of performance. Now the call goes out for you to participate on a local, national and international level to the common goal of offering the best performance possible for our young audiences.
Should you be a part?
- Yes, if you believe in the ideals laid out here.
- Yes, if you believe your audiences deserve the best you can offer.
- Yes, if you want to help set the bar of performance.
- Yes, if you want the best tools of our artform available.
