IJA Tricks of the Month by Jorge Petit from Chile | Juggling balls

Born and raised in Santiago de Chile, I started juggling in 2002 for fun. After meeting a lot of amazing jugglers, festivals and artists around the world, I decided to move to Quebec City, Canada in 2011 where I attended the Circus School for two years. Since then I have been working professionally in different festivals, street shows, events and well known companies such as the 7 fingers, Cirque Éloize and Cirque du Soleil in the show Crystal.

My approach to juggling is to find ways to be creative and how to allow myself to move using juggling as a motor force to make my body react to it. I have never been good with technical number juggling so I always tried to push myself to find new ways and moves to define my style. Nobody can be yourself other than you! I try to be myself when I juggle.

I love being on stage and that is what keeps me motivated to train and improve my skills.

I filmed this video in Costa Rica in October. Sadly I lost a lot of footage from my phone and I had to replace my original idea with some other clips.

I hope you Enjoy it!
