New Costumes 2018

New Costumes 2018

So, I understand, these graphics are a good example of why you shouldn’t create your own graphics. But, this was an exercise in whimsy. At least it’s a great way to share all the new costumes I can offer after a serious upgrade this year. LED Winter Princess! You can’t be a performer without an LED costume these days! It’s so important to be seen in these dark days. I have this new heart shaped dress LED tutu that’s wonderful for the Christmas season. 50’s Rockabily This bright number is great for a punch of color at an event. Spunky, and high energy, this is wonderful for cocktail events and dinners Classic Circus Similar to the rock-ability, this is a throwback to the past with a classic vintage circus look, complete with matching luggage!   The Water Goddess This piece was inspired by the tide. Pulled by the moon, the waters of the earth are ever changing. Luna, the white eyed mystic, is the one who controls them. Jade This serious face shows the depth of the character that comes with this stage presence. This contact juggling piece is shows profound emotions, while looking you in the eye.

Meeting Craig Quat: The evolution in juggling pedagogy

Meeting Craig Quat: The evolution in juggling pedagogy

(Please note that all of the quotes presented here are actually paraphrased, but written as quotes to denote speaking. I don’t have a direct recording to be completely accurate of his word choices, but attempted an approximation for a feel of who Quat is.)   Craig Quat walks into the room with a large bounce in his step. “I need a few minutes to relax before we start, I just had an 8 hour meeting” he says. He was meeting with Cirque du Soleil to consult with them about their new family entertainment centers. “But first, who are you?” he asks. I tell him that I am a juggler, and more recently, a mom. “Being a mom is juggling. Changing a diaper requires bilateral precision through space and time. You have to unfold the diaper and hold a baby while they try to roll and anticipate their movements so you can get it in the right spot.” he pauses.  “Everything is juggling”. It seems to me like this is his motto. Quat is a bundle of passion and vibrance who talks fast about deep concepts with a strong penchant for ethics. He is highly researched with a sureness about the importance of his work, but feels a need to continue researching and do more trials. One thing that’s for sure, he cares for, and understands his students like no other teacher I have ever seen. Most of his energy revolves around helping people learn about juggling. He will tell you a dozen juggling related neurological facts. “Juggling increases the brain mass by 5 percent after 6 weeks of practice...
We Learn Better Together – Workshop in August!

We Learn Better Together – Workshop in August!

Has it been hard for you to learn contact juggling? Struggling to learn contact juggling is, unfortunately, normal. Compared to many of the flow arts, those initial moves take a lot of determination to achieve. Right now, contact juggling, is poorly taught. We need to review our pedagogy.  Also, in North America, we are far away from each other and that makes it more difficult to be motivated. That’s why we strive to put new and improved lessons on youtube, and trying to help the community grow from an informed place. I think we can build an army of great contact jugglers and push this field forward! We Learn Better Together Thom and I started a new website called ballcontact.org – a project that is dedicated to learning and growing as contact jugglers. We all used to use contactjuggling.org, but when Facebook came along, it took over our community. Still, it’s important to make lessons simple, easy to achieve and really change the philosophy that juggling stands on. We are here to change the way we learn contact juggling, and we want to bring everyone to one place, because we learn better together. Join us in Montreal for our first 2 days intensive contact juggling workshop! Contact Ball Intensive AUGUST 11 & 12 9H15 – 15H30 MONTREAL, QC SADHAKA YOGA STUDIO Contact juggling is lonely on your own. Come and meet friends & learn this art together!
