Lean to juggle: It's a snap!

Filed Under: entertaining

My husband lived with a juggler in college. While they were roommates, Jason picked up some pretty good juggling skills. He's tried teaching me, but I have proven to be a slow learner in this realm. I think this video is just what I needed. If you're looking to add another cool skill to your party trick repertoire I'd suggest learning juggling with the Snap method. This video is teaches a simple way to learn the traditional three ball juggle.

Learn to juggle in 8 steps:
  1. Toss one ball head height. Start in your dominant hand and catch with your non-dominant hand. You can do it!

  2. Continue tossing the ball as you did in step one, but this time snap your other hand before catching it. Think of a metronome as you try to keep rhythm. Relax!

  3. Repeat step 2 with your non-dominant hand. Don't give up!

  4. Cycle the ball through each hand. Keep it continuous. Snap each hand between catches. Focus!

  5. Add in a second ball. Toss them head height, keeping a single snap. Master each step!

  6. Repeat step 5. Make it continuous. Think: snap, catch, catch. Breath!

  7. Add in your third ball in place of the snap. Master this step by stopping at three throws and catches. Don't forget to count it out. Finish strong!

  8. Once you've got the hang of it, keep going. Enjoy, teach and show off!
