Almost anyone can juggle
. . .
not an art form reserved solely for a professional circus performer
or for clowns but a physically and mentally relaxing form of recreation
which can help you discover and nurture your innate coordination. Once
you've learned how, juggling, like swimming, is impossible to forget.
So it's a skill you can keep for life. Unlike most sports, juggling
is completely portable and you can do it almost anywhere either alone,
with a partner, or in a group." - Dave Finnigan
When I first
began this art form, a group of like minded people gathered once a week
(in fact at one time we met on two consecutive days in a week) at the
Substation to remedy those itching fingers, hands, feet, foreheads and
goodness knows what else. We started with a core group of not more than
5 chaps which gradually deteriorated to a big zero. In between, there
were a couple of attempts to fix a permanent practice day in the week.
This horrendous figure wasn't here to stay till in December 98', we
revived our very own local juggling group at a brand new location -
Jugglers, we practise regularly on Friday's. This informal group
boast of an ever increasing network of local jugglers.
