How Do Street Magicians Levitate?

Answer

Street magicians usually levitate using a number of methods that are mainly based on physics. However, in order to levitate, a magician has to have good sense of balance. Some of the methods that are used include electrostatic, magnetic, electromagnetic and aerodynamic techniques. Magicians therefore have a good understanding of physics and the forces that would make an object be magically suspended in air.
