Camping with my pal Magic Chris, escaping last week’s heatwave in the Catskills. He brought his juggling equipment and I thought the rocky stream and the camp would be cool locations to show off his skills. chrismagic.net Here he meets the challenge of keeping his balance on these rounded and unstable rocks while throwing the diabolo high into the air. If he can do this, he can certainly entertain the guests at your party on level ground.
The viewfinder of my camera was useless for getting the high shots, not registering the blur of the diabolo at all. I ended up following it with my eyes, hoping I was aiming where I was looking. That actually worked pretty well, though the translucent yellow greenish diabolo does disappears into the blown out sky.

Juggle This, the 9th annual juggling festival at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. It’s basically Pratt’s huge gym, with the floor covered in a blue protective tarp, and given over to jugglers of all skill levels for three days. There you can learn techniques and show off your skills to your heart’s content. Some of the jugglers I captured on the video are: Joshua Edelman from Jersey City, Michael Glenn from New Hampshire, Keith Leaf, Keith Nelson, Tony Duncan, and the Case Juggling Club. Anyone else here, who is featured here, and wants a link, leave it in the comments.
