Connor J -

Hi everyone, new member here based in greater Chicagoland.

3-5 balls/clubs are my favorite to practice. Not a big siteswap or 360s guy, but I certainly can appreciate them.

Thanks for the add!

Welcome aboard, Connor!

Thank you kindly!

Hi & welcome Connor J!
.. have you done or can you do 5b reverse for example, .. anything other than cascade?

Connor J - - Parent

Hello there, and thank you. Yes, I can run a reverse cascade with 5, along with half shower, shower, overheads, and Gattoplexes.

7b_wizard - - Parent

ah, nice, and coool :o)

Maria - - Parent

Welcome to the Edge!

Some day I will learn to juggle 5, too...
I juggle clubs most of the time, so that might be one of the reasons I haven't learned 5 yet. Other reasons would be that it is easier to learn new tricks with 3 or 4, and that passing always has higher priority than solo juggling.

Thank you kindly, Maria.

Overview European Juggling Props Manufacturers/Brands

This was posted on the juggling subreddit and I thought I'd ask the most European juggling forum I know if they had anything to add.

If you'd rather post here, I don't mind carrying your suggestions over.

No love for Henrys?

There's also Unicycle, in France,

Orinoco - - Parent

Henry's is top of the list!

Tufty - - Parent

Bugger me, right next to my reading glasses!

Little Paul - - Parent

I’m so glad PassePasse is not on the list, if it were me I’d keep it that way...

However, spotlight in Amsterdam should absolutely be on the list as should firetoys

7b_wizard - - Parent

I'm not sure if there isn't one from the diabolist (with "diabolo" in its name)?

I'm also not sure if it helps, to drop this search for artistry gear here as many shops get their goods from a samr producer? Maybe flying over the results makes someone recall who knows better than me..

There will be a Virtual Edition of Bungay Balls Up this May.

All details on
See you there!

Mike Moore - - Parent

Yahoo! I'll look forward to my first BBU!

Ric Taylor.

I just heard the sad news that we lost Ric recently. You may have known him from the Manchester juggling scene. Nothing but good memories of him for me. Thanks for making me smile, Ric.

Cedric Lackpot - - Parent


That's not fair. Miss you Ric.

Little Paul -

I’ve just watched this, and thought a couple of people here might enjoy it (and that a couple of other people might grumble that it’s “not juggling” - but we don’t listen to them...)

Tufty - - Parent

That's mesmerising.

The Void - - Parent

It's good, but it's no Alban Elved.

Did anyone here follow the discussion regarding if Yoann's work is original or not?

Tufty - - Parent

While not all of that could be considered plagiarism (how many jugglers have used Bach's fugues, and tried to implement fugal form, for example, and it's not exactly uncommon to see jugglers performing a box, or finishing with a combined catch / bow) it does seem that M. Bourgeois might have been a bit "literal" with the works influencing his own ...

EJC 2021 Cancelled 😞

(message from EJC Organisers on website (and facebook)

It’s been a long winter and an even longer pandemic. We have seen a lot of changes and uncertainties in a really short period of time. In 2020, we had to cancel EJC for the first time in history and now, one year later, we are facing the reality that EJC will be cancelled yet again.

Finland is just at the beginning of its biggest wave of infections so far, and vaccination in Finland is not far enough along to save the day – government estimation is that the general public will get their first vaccinations in June. Added to this, with new mutations developing all over the world, we believe that it would not be responsible to host an event encouraging people to travel and mix. We acknowledge that the performing arts are in a dire state, with no immediate relief in sight. The idea of holding an EJC to combat this is tempting, but through the lens of social responsibility, we have decided it is irresponsible to gather so many people from all over the world.

With a sad heart we have to cancel EJC 2021 💔
We don’t want to put all the work to waste, so we will do our best to organise a Gala Show and stream it. Thanks to the fundraising, EJA and Arts Promotion Centre Finland we will be able to organise it without any major risks. So stay tuned!

Let’s hope that in 2022, we will be all together free to juggle at EJC in Tres Cantos!

With Love and health!

The EJC 2021 Crew and Team

**” The EJA (in collaboration with EJC team) is currently working on having an additional online event in place for around the same as the Gala Show. This way everyone can still get some enjoyable EJC vibes into their summer and attend the General Assembly to choose the EJC for 2023. If you want to find out more about these plans (of if you want to help out) then sign up for the EJA newsletter or use the “contact us” page on the EJA website.

Line vs Cascade - Tricks of the Month

I made another TotM video! Inverted sprung cascade was the foundation of a good chunk of what brought me to this idea, so I thought it only right that I post another result of that here.

7b_wizard - - Parent


a wonderful setup, wonderful, beautiful and strong patterns and juggling!

you have - over time - accumulated an extremely individual big repertoire.

a'll have to watch it again more than once to understand, 'read' all the patterns right.

Mike Moore - - Parent

Thanks! I enjoy the weird path that I wound up on.

The Void - - Parent

Nice! I enjoyed watching that and mostly not knowing what was going on. ;-)
Bonus points for kiwi cushion and periodic blanket.

Mike Moore - - Parent

Thanks! The kiwi cushion was purchased en route to a juggling festival after the realization that I forgot mine at home. It was on sale at the restaurant we stopped in just before arriving. Such service!

Tufty - - Parent

Lovely. Some pretty insane stuff there.

Mike Moore - - Parent

Thank you!
