Juggle for Wellness is a class focused on teaching the basics of 3 ball juggling to the LGBT+ community. It’s a fun portable workout that can be done alone or shared with friends. Our workshop is 90 minutes long and is set to fun upbeat music. We provide the juggling balls that you will use during the class, so all that you need to bring with you is yourself in clothes that you comfortable being active in.
The workshop begins with a brief summary about the benefits of juggling and the logistics of the 3 Ball Cascade. Then, we get everyone up and involved as we do a quick hands‐on introduction and warm up. As a group, we start with one ball, work up to two balls, then continue with 3 balls, giving one‐on‐one attention as needed. Once we establish a rhythm with our students and they are ready to move beyond the 3 Ball Cascade we will begin to teach other juggling patterns and tricks. Near the end of the class we will bring out other props for the class to use. Including: Juggling Scarves, Juggling Rings, Spinning Plates, Buugeng and Contact Juggling Balls.
