Meraux Dantes

Meraux Dantes is a mysterious and mystical mindreader—and a charming and captivating character. Close up you’ll see him move objects without touching them and bend metal with his mind. On stage, you'll watch in awe as he reveals the celebrity you've merely thought of in your mind.

Meraux's belief that some of the greatest things in life are best left a mystery infuses each of his performances. He's a specialist in "mind magic" — using observation, intuition, and unique hypnotic techniques in a safe, professional, and most importantly, fun, manner.

His greatest talent is not in his fork-bending or mind-reading but in his ability to create personal connections and generate genuine warmth with every person he meets. As a magician, he's been spotlighted on ABC's The Chew and by The New York Times. You can find Meraux performing most Wednesdays through Sundays at Disney Springs in Orlando.
