When Lance was five years old, his parents took him to a Christmas party in which one of the attractions was a magician named Harry Collins, well known in the region. During the presentation Lance was called to the stage to assist in one of Collins’s numbers. The magician began to remove coins from the small Lance Burton’s ear, who at that moment decided what he would do in his life. His first lessons were learned from a children’s magic book which he borrowed from his neighbour. Lance quickly learned all the tricks described in the book and began doing exhibitions for his friends and neighbours. Moreover, he began charging for his shows: five cents per person. During every Christmas and birthday Burton received magic kits, which steadily improved his skills. However, he needed more and found a well known magician to teach him, so none other than Harry Collins began to introduce other principles of magic to him, which were less likely to be learned from books. At the age of 14, he bought his first costume. In 1977, he entered an amateur magic contest and won the first prize, and the age of 20 received the gold medal for excellence, the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
Then, he moved to the state of California, where he met Bill and Milton Larsen, who liked his show and promoted him throughout the USA. His big breakthrough came when he was invited to present the television show and afterwards received an invitation to perform in Las Vegas, where his show hit box office records. In 1982, he joined the Fédération International Societé of Magique, Switzerland, and was recognized as the world champion of magic. After that he received many other awards, such as the title of Magician of the Year from the Academy of Magical Arts. He was performing in Monte Carlo – Resort and Casino in Las Vegas having his own show. In the autumn of 2010, his contract expired and was not extended. Regardless, in 2016, he won the David Devant Award which is given for those who made a significant contribution for the art of magic.
Finally, in the personal life of the magician, he married Melinda Saxe in 1993, but they divorced the following year.
