Did you know that learning juggling has been proven to increase grey matter in the brain for all ages? We’ll be accessing this benefit in class using the framework of modern patterns that start extra easy and allow for adjusting difficulty at one’s own pace. From Trevor: “What I’ve been loving most about these patterns is how helpful it is to use musical selections as a rhythmic guide for them from the outset of learning. It gives me a chance to share the joy I feel when juggling in time to music with beginners!”
Materials needed: 3 “balls” of a size you can comfortably fit 2 in 1 hand. Squishy juggling beanbags, stress balls or hacky sacks recommended. Harder balls of a comfortable size and throwing weight would also be adequate. If you don’t have either of those and you still want in, tennis balls (which are too light unmodified) and/or balloons can be modified to make a nice juggling ball. Google for details!
