Juggling in New York

Today was my first juggling class at New York Circus Arts Academy. Some things I can do now that I probably couldn't have yesterday include:
  • 3-ball: "steal" from the side
  • 3-ball: catch a ball between my shoulder blades
  • 3-ball: catch a ball reliably with the back side of the hand
  • 3-club: do about 40 throws (american-style clubs) without a drop
  • diabolo: cat's cradle into suicide toss
On the other hand, some things that still need a lot of work include:
  • balls: "claw" catches
  • balls/clubs: regular passing
  • balls: the transition *after* I've caught a ball between the shoulder blades.
  • diabolo: "the whip".

Have I mentioned how much you need to come to Pennsic?

I believe you have, yes.

BTW, I think they call it a "suicide toss" because when you let go of one diabolo stick and let it swing around, there's a decent chance if you don't catch it that you'll get hit in the head.

("It's being hit on the head lessons!")
