Lots of powerful memories of Sean were shared during the planning …

Pendulum Juggling Enters its Third Decade

The genesis of pendulum juggling can be traced to a singular source in 1993.

This video is first and foremost about having fun with juggling. Jay Gilligan presents a number of accessible creative suggestions of ways to look at juggling that aren't just based on technical skill and can be executed with basic props that we mostly all have. He demonstrates ways to "breaks the rules" through such things as picking up additional props or throwing/hitting others away in the middle of a pattern. You'll surely be inspired to try something new that you might have never thought was acceptable to do before.
