A Little More About Juggling
There are many different reasons to learn how to juggle. First of all, juggling is a lot of fun, but beyond that it makes you smarter, helps you concentrate, relieves stress, gives you a physical workout, entertains people, gives you a sense of accomplishment, etc. If you want to learn more about the benefits of juggling, I’ve written a very informative article on the topic.
I have always encouraged people to learn how to juggle when they show an interest. People are usually surprised at how easy it is to learn. You can learn the basics in just a few hours of practice. It doesn’t take much to get started because you can usually find what you need laying around. Just grab some old baseballs, tennis balls, or ball up some socks. You don’t need anything special to get started.
The Common Perception of Juggling
Most people associate juggling with the circus and clowns. Sure there are people who juggle in the circus – performers. Clowns can juggle too, but every juggler is not a clown and not every juggler is a performer.
Juggling has evolved. I would even go so far as to say it’s cool. Just like skateboarding has its own culture, juggling has its own culture. It also has many specialties that fit into the general culture. There are so many different types of juggling equipment, different styles, and interests. Just take a look at some of the latest juggling videos that are showing up on Youtube and you’ll see what I mean. Juggler does not = circus or clown.
