Walk-around (Strolling) Magic
It is magic performed intimately for a small group where both the audience and the performer are standing such as a cocktail party or reception. The performer is self-contained working out of his pockets requiring no table or additional props to entertain the audience with a short show. The beauty of walk-around is that it can be repeated several small groups during an event allowing the performer to work the room.
