This act starts with some magical isolations, and leads into some incredible body rolling. It stops traffic and has a punchy feeling.
Contemporary Flow Act
Here’s a simple contact juggling piece I did at the Kingston Jugglers Festival in 2016 where I added emotion and a small taste of contemporary dance ideas.
Here is the act Scherazade I did with the Kingston Symphony, The full version is 11 minutes and includes most of my crystal ball, work, which also includes puppet contact balls and baby multi balls.

Contact Juggling Teaching
“In my 15 years of contact juggling, I have encountered very few people who posses Dawn’s ability to innovative, inspire and inform. She has a commitment to finding a deeper understanding of the art-form, which truly sets her apart as a performer, educator and driving force of our artistic community.
Tearing up the rulebook of established, now out-dated, pedagogy, Dawn’s teaching method focuses on making contact juggling accessible and exciting from the very first lesson. Her research into the mechanics and mindset of body-rolling has created a wonderfully unique take on contact, striking a balance between the joyously playful and the fiendishly technical. All of which is covered in a clear, fun way in her classes.
The amount of thought that Dawn has put into communicating this teaching method, coupled with the distinct nature of her style, means that I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend her as a teacher. From the aspirational new juggler to the jaded old hands (like me) I can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t benefit from following Dawn’s teaching.”
