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.

136 is Jay's IJA life membership number. Jay will be teaching special workshops at the IJA festival this summer (https://www.juggle.org/ija/festival/2013-ija-festival-festival-summary/2013-ija-festival-special-workshops/) and he recently published a stunning book about juggling.

Reasons You Should Fail

No one steps up to bat for the first time and hits a home run, and no one steps up to five clubs and starts doing backcrosses. I look at videos of my early performances and cringe. When starting out you need some ridiculous amounts of optimism to convince yourself that it was actually okay and the next time will …
