Have you ever wanted to run away and join the circus? Learn one of the basic requirements to do just that—juggle! We’ll start by learning the basic three-ball cascade and then begin adding new moves such as “tennis.” The focus will be on learning two balls in one hand, in columns.

We suggest you have on hand three juggling balls. You can order juggling balls online (https://www.flyingclipper.com/pro-70-juggle-ball?rid-PLA&gclid=CjwKCAjw9sreBRBAEiwARroYm74rVV-MUvx6ZRskNQTkW11Xc6wHftwiw_u1EOBxAdUy9beZxNuM_BoCgJUQAvD_BwE. You can also use Lacrosse balls or convert tennis balls into juggling balls by filling them with dried rice or birdseed and then covering them with balloons (with the ends cut off).
