Amazing the newcomers and their parents, were the child magicians Asmin, Alina, Anamika, Nadhiya, Nikhil, Rahul, Samson, Shanu, Rajeevan, Sidharth, Thejus and Rohith. Among them, Nadhiya was the first to enter the stage with her amazing trick of making unequal ropes equal in length. She also produced four flamboyant bouquets by just waving her towel. Following her, others in the team performed with talent and nobody wanted to be second to anyone. All of them have passed out of the lower and higher levels of summer classes conducted by the Academy during last year.
