07:05:53@russ.sharek:matrix.orgRuss Sharek RussSharek - Reasons to love the #circus:

Visual proof that we're all connected. The World Circus Federation sent a set of #juggling clubs to youth circuses around the world to capture each group using them.

More than 98,000 km traveled, 20 different schools. All of them using the same set of props for a moment, and making something bigger than themselves in the process.

World Circus Day

05:36:26@russ.sharek:matrix.orgRuss SharekI have a decent head balance and a solid juggle. Any one have any tips for combining them?

I have a decent head balance and a solid juggle. Any one have any tips for combining them?

I think i heard that most people focus mainly on the head balance and the juggle needs to be almost automated.

17:47:35@russ.sharek:matrix.orgRuss Sharek Indeed. Guess I'll keep at it.

03:35:32@russ.sharek:matrix.orgRuss SharekAnyone have a good online resource explaining siteswap for beginners? Some of my students are asking.

14:45:23@palmcron:matrix.orgpalmcron Now it happened: someone hummed the circus melody when he saw me juggling :)
First timer for me.
17:25:16@russ.sharek:matrix.orgRuss SharekCongrats!

20:12:45@russ.sharek:matrix.orgRuss SharekHad a lovely moment at our clown gym last night. I was passing with a partner, and I looked over to see one of my students teaching 9 people how to juggle. :)
22:26:25@russ.sharek:matrix.orgRuss SharekWay back when we used to run large playdays in the park like that. Was fun to see that big sharing vibe back for a moment.
22:38:10@palmcron:matrix.orgpalmcronOur group has been meeting in the park quite often lately and there are people interested every now and then.
22:38:46@russ.sharek:matrix.orgRuss SharekGood! Where is your group based?
22:42:06@palmcron:matrix.orgpalmcronErlangen, Germany; yours?
22:44:45@russ.sharek:matrix.orgRuss SharekDallas, Texas, US.

20:49:59@russ.sharek:matrix.orgRuss Sharek palmcron: I dug this up for you. Back in the day, when our juggling community was ridiculously large, a friend put this video together. We ended up being an official world circus day site a few times after that. :)

Ages ago. Haven't seen some of these people in years.


22:10:59@palmcron:matrix.orgpalmcronThat was fun to watch! Thank you for sharing
22:16:18@russ.sharek:matrix.orgRuss SharekAbsolutely. I love that we tracked down the band and got permission to use their song. So appropriate to the idea of exploring play.

08:24:11@palmcron:matrix.orgpalmcron Somehow activity in here faded a bit. Did you know, that the #freenode_##juggling:matrix.org irc is also bridged to the matrix? It also doesn't have much activity, though.
08:28:22@russ.sharek:matrix.orgRuss Sharek Bummer. I'd like to keep this room going too.
08:33:27@palmcron:matrix.orgpalmcronDon't worry, I'll stay here, too 🤹
08:35:45@russ.sharek:matrix.orgRuss SharekMy juggling partner and I spent some time working on her juggling while standing on my shoulders this evening. Slow progress.
09:22:12@palmcron:matrix.orgpalmcronYeah, it's quite difficult, and at least for me trying to do passing between base and flyer does feel impossible.
16:33:51@russ.sharek:matrix.orgRuss Sharek Nowhere near that yet. Was working to have flyer pass with another partner. Haven't gotten stable enough to let go of flyer yet.

08:50:22@palmcron:matrix.orgpalmcronHow is the two man high juggling going, @russ.sharek:matrix.org ?
17:28:33@russ.sharek:matrix.orgRuss Sharek I've been recovering from a broken toe, so things slowed down a bit. I'm back to it, and we've been focusing in cleaning up the form on the two high. Last night we managed to walk around a bit, and I transferred my partner on and off a ladder from my shoulders!
