Juggling and Object Manipulation: a.k.a. Juggling for Non-Jugglers with Benjamin Domask Ruh

August 11 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$34 – $40

This is a juggling class for non-jugglers. Explore basic elements of juggling – the Throw, the Catch, and Balance. Dive into what these terms mean and how the principles can apply to you. Investigate how to use instability as a creative tool. Discover the poetry in the tension of failure. You can expect to drop things, laugh, and learn in a fun environment designed as a safe place to fail, look ridiculous, share, and try again. Participants will walk away with an understanding of creative techniques from the circus arts. Juggling props will be supplied.

Permission to be a beginner? GRANTED!
