Join the Circus!!!

I don't like spreadsheets, so I would rather keep conversation in this thread for all to benefit.  I am a skilled juggler, contact juggler.  I can spin poi, baton relatively well.  I like to dabble.  Such is the nature of circus arts... you want to collect them all!

 

I would like to know if there are others like me  or if you want to learn.  I would love to point you in the right direction.

Contact juggling is something I would be interested in learning, though I have terrible body flow and I'm not much good with my hands. I would be more interested in spinning (poi perhaps, but I am looking at getting a bo staff), a little acrobatics, and tumbling. Any help would be appreciated :)

I was so uncoordinated as a kid, they put me in a special pe class.

I learned by practicing an hour a day. You can too! Learning anything like this teaches body awareness.  It just takes a little time... half hour to and hour a day.  Keep it fun!  If it gets frustrating, try doing something else for a while.

Here are juggling and hooping and spinning clubs all over the world.  All you need to do is look.  If you want, tell me what city and I can point you in the right direction.  Circus is fun, healthy and athletic.  The community is open minded to anybody who wants to learn, they are very friendly.

 

It can be artsy, intense, meditative, or goofy.  Anything you want it to be.

Juggled for 15 minutes in my living room. Working on symmetry.  It felt like I was getting better and I was starting to sweat.  Yay juggle fitness!

Understand that everyone needs time. Understand that everyone deserves patience. Understand that healing, and change take countless seconds, minutes and hours before real health of body and mind can be obtained at all.

Loving the links. Thanks.

 

I'm pushing myself to learn contortion. Sadly, can't afford take classes (also more than hour away too :( ). So far actually being able to do quit a bit.
