Juggling Fun

Why not learn to juggle? It’s a fun way to impress your friends even if you are just a beginner. Like sports? Juggling is said to increase your hand-eye reflexes and your coordination. Like to be in the spotlight? It’s a great way to show off in a talent show and if you get really good at it, you can do it professionally at festivals or parties.

History of Juggling
 
Juggling was known in the ancient world—from Egypt to Rome to China to India to Greece to Polynesia to the Aztecs. * King’s entertainers might sing, play musical instruments, tell stories, and perform acrobatics and many of them could also juggle.
 
Today, jugglers perform in circuses, on the streets in big cities, at festivals and in schools. Many stage magicians, clowns, storytellers and comedians make juggling a part of their acts.
