An Introduction to Juggling

Juggling, An Introduction to

Tracing their ancestry to the court jesters of the Middle Ages, modern day jugglers continue to bring smiles to the faces of their audiences as they display mesmerizing degrees of physical dexterity, agility, and inventiveness. Aspiring jugglers need only master a few basic techniques before they too can begin to dazzle family and friends with their newly acquired skills. This program provides entertaining and progressively challenging instruction for the beginning juggler. Viewers learn fundamental throwing, timing, and catching skills initially through use of "silks" (large handkerchiefs) that float diagonally within an imaginary frame in a figure eight pattern, and later through use of small juggling balls. Viewers realize the value of relaxed, consistent, and fluid movement, and the need to avoid the pitfalls of "circling their hands, crossing their arms, stepping forward, and catching too high." After building confidence through basic individual and partner exercises using two and three balls, "underhand catches," and "inside throws," viewers learn two new techniques - the "overhand catch" and the "outside throw" - and several special skills, including the "T-shirt throw," the "pillar throw," the "V-finger catch," the "shower," and the "waterfall." Finally, viewers learn the preferred grips and unique skills required to master some of the other "tools of the juggler's trade," including rings, Indian clubs, Chinese plates, and devil sticks. 00/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
