Workshop for Basic Figure 8 Juggling with Erin
Saturday, July 10th @ 12- 1pm
Juggling is a great skill for improving hand/eye coordination, reflexes, spatial awareness and concentration. It also aids in hand and arm strength, and when your skills improve, it is an aerobic activity. This is an easy and entertaining skill for children and adults to learn when broken down into steps. There is also some research that indicates that juggling accelerates the growth of neural connections in the brain. (Something we can all use!)
The basic figure 8 pattern for juggling can be broken down into about 7 simple steps. The mastery of these steps is necessary for accomplishing and maintaining any juggling pattern. With time and practice, there are a multitude of variations to add to juggling skills as well as using different items; scarves, hoops, clubs, etc.
Price: $18 in advance or $20 at the door. This workshop is open to children and adults with bean bags for borrowing, or if you fall in love with juggling, for sale at $5 per set.
