By Dan and Dave
Cardistry - Pirouette



Like spinning a basketball, but with a single playing card. A Pirouette is an eye-catching flourish. Done well, it can even seem as though the card is suspended between your fingers for a magical effect.

Dan and Dave, 31, are twin brothers who share an insane ability to manipulate playing cards. Whether you call it magic, sleight of hand or juggling, one thing is for sure, witness them with a deck of cards and you will have a whole new outlook on what is possible. Their creative approach has spawned a new generation of fast paced, visual, in-your-face magic as well as an entirely new art form known as Card Flourishes. If you saw the 2007 film, Smokin' Aces, you witnessed their skill first hand. Earlier, in 2006, Cingular Wireless caught eye and incorporated their techniques into a commercial for Samsung’s Blackjack phone and recently they were hired to hand double for an entire season of hit children’s show, LazyTown. With all this, including, acclaim from David Copperfield and David Blaine, appearing on the cover of Genii magazine, being published in numerous books as well as authoring several of their own instructional books and DVDs and producing their own brand of playing cards, Dan and Dave would tell you they’re just getting started.
