As far as the very patient participants from Contest #3, the winner is John Chase for it’s humor and simplicity. We …

2013 Mexico IJA Regional Competition

Haga clic aquí para ver el artículo en español… From an acrobatic ninja clown with flower sticks, to a hooper spinning on the ground with a hula hoop on her bun, to intricate and creative club manipulation, to a giraffe unicyclist playing jamming tunes on a saxophone – the 2013 Mexico IJA Regional Competition (IRC) gracefully incorporated the  format of the IJA …

10 Questions With Delaney Bayles

     When I walked into the gym at the IJA Festival this past July, my twin brother ran up to me and immediately said, “You’ve got to come see the stuff that this teenaged girl is doing.  She’s amazing!” He was referring to Delaney Bayles.

Be Funnier With Scotty Meltzer: I Look At All The Funny People

I’m writing this article on the plane home from the IJA festival in Bowling Green, Ohio. What a fantastic week! If you’ve never been to an IJA festival, I highly recommend it.

The Show Must Go On: Anecdotes of Mid-Show Mishaps – Part 2

As I stated at the onset of Part 1 of this article, “The show must go on” is an old show business adage that originated in the circus. It still applies today for most professionals.  We prepare and train in order to present the very best performances we can, but things often don’t go according to plan. In my thirty …

The Pastels: Amateurs Triumphant

The four guys who won the Teams Competition at the 2013 IJA festival are not really jugglers. That seems a harsh thing to say about a team, the Pastels, dressed in pastels, who blew away the audience with an intricate, energetic club passing routine covering all of the stage and including complex four-person patterns and some acrobatics, passing from atop …
