Contact Juggling Workshop descriptions:
Introduction to Contact Juggling/Body Rolling theory
If you have never tried contact juggling before, this is your chance. This workshop is new framework for learning contact juggling, aimed at trying to get people to be capable to do body rolling more efficiently. Starting with some basic balances, Dawn will lead you through some drills to learn arm rolling on each side, steps to lead up to butterfly theory, and lead you into some basic chest roll theory at the end. All levels accepted!
VTG Contact Juggling Butterfly Theory – intermediate
*Basic Butterfly required
Using the butterfly in contact juggling, and then morphing it into a thousand patterns, this theory opens up a new world. Techniques that are found in spinning cultures can open up the range of motion used in contact juggling. These new techniques can be combined with body rolling theory to make a big impact on audiences. Dawn spent the last 2 years in France researching this new butterfly theory, learning that you could use VTG to understand new and interesting patterns giving the ability to dance and move with your ball play. This theory is not taught by any one else in the world and will be the first time it is taught on North American soil!
Advanced Body Rolling
Intermediate to Advanced – continuation of Introduction to contact juggling/VTG workshops
Have you ever wanted to learn behind the neck rolls? Dawn has spent years learning how to teach this concept to others, and can give you tips and tricks. We can also jam concepts such as learning to roll from low to high, including bridge rolls, leg rolls and more! If time permits we can also learn about changing the various rolls into variations e.g.: straight armed chest roll or barrel rolling while rolling a ball are concepts in advanced juggling.
Learn Diabolo, Hula hoop, devil sticks, Feather balancing, spinning plates, 3 ball – 5 ball juggling, juggling, contact juggling, stilt walking & basic circus skillz! Add some psychology into the mix and you’ll walk out knowing how it’s physically possible for us to balance and juggle our body and our life!
I’ve been teaching workshops on four continents for the last 10 years. I was the University of Victoria club president in 2008 & 2009, where I learned how to juggle all the things! Check out the Contact Juggling In Canada documentary series created with Ryan Mellors back in 2008 for a bit of history, or even better go check out the new self-produced DVD: Foundations of Contact Juggling – Body Rolling
