What Goes Up! _ Australian Juggling to World War 1 is released on May 25.
Who hires jugglers in Sydney? Where can I see a juggler in Sydney? Well let me answer that for you.
Jugglers are everywhere, in the parks, on the streets, in the shopping centres and in the schools- but not in parliament. Although things might be better if they were!
Recently there have been appearances by Sydney jugglers in Westfields all over the city. There have been many corporate events where jugglers have appeared and of course, the cabaret theatres around Sydney always incorporate jugglers.
In fact, recently a Sydney Juggler appeared at a French restaurant.
So they really are everywhere.
But if you want your own juggler, you can hire one from our jugglers’ page. They’ll do corporate events, children’s entertainment, birthday parties, shopping centre appearances and openings.
And if you don’t want to hire one, why not become one? There are lots of juggling tutorials on line. One of my favourites is Taylor Tries
All you need to do is buy three juggling balls and have enthusiasm.
And juggle, juggle, juggle.
The COVID lockdowns played havoc with jugglers everywhere, but now, post lockdown, it’s great to see jugglers still juggling and Sydney entertainment incorporating juggling into all its events.
Conventions are back too! This weekend jugglers are having an outrageously great time at the Adelaide Juggling Convention. Check them out on Instagram.
I suspect the Melbourne Juggling Convention will be back too-
In international news, the European Juggling Convention is back better than ever. Tres Cantos in Spain will be forever changed by 3000 jugglers- Get your tickets now.
I had the good fortune to spend some time in New York City in January and I met the wonderful jugglers of Bryant Park Juggling- If you’re ever in NYC go and visit them.
If you are looking for jugglers for your birthday party, corporate event, entertainment in Sydney or any other reason, check out our associates.
And- Happy Juggling.
They juggle rings. They juggle balls, They juggle clubs. They juggle in rain, in sunshine, indoors, outdoors, in Europe, Australia and around the world. If you want to hire Sydney Jugglers, be quick, they’re skilled, popular and exciting. They’re also fun and will brighten your birthday party, your corporate event or children’s entertainment.
We’ve added some new places to buy juggling props on our buying page. Our friends at the Circus shop in Perth are happy to help jugglers and circus performers with their orders, and Sophie and her staff will talk about where, and how, to get those hard to find items too.
The most exciting thing happening in the Australian juggling world is the Melbourne Juggling Convention on 28th September. Special guest this year is Emil Dahl. Emil, from Sweden, is one of the most well known and skilled jugglers in the world. Of course, no MJC is complete without Australia’s world class jugglers, and they’ll all be there too.
MJC is always great value. Check out their page, visit the gala show or go to a workshop. This is the biggest juggling event in the Australian Juggling calendar. Don’t miss it.
In local news, Marrickville Fire Jam is continuing at Enmore Park. If you want to spin fire, or practice your flow skills, or just hang out, Enmore Park is a great place to do it. This month they are holding fire jams at 7pm on the 30th of August and the 14th September.
Now the school holidays are over, the University juggling clubs are back. You can contact them through our juggling meetups page.
Don’t forget to follow us on instagram
Out Insta page features some skilled international and local jugglers. It also features some people new to the art of juggling, and you can tell how much they enjoy it by the smiles on their faces.
It’s impossible to be sad when juggling, because Juggling is fun, social ,and an art form for all the family. It keeps you fit and makes you happy.
So do yourself a favour and become a happy juggler today.
Juggling balls, juggling rings, juggling clubs, all this and more has been done by Sydney Jugglers over the last month. We’ve been juggling at football finals, schools, festivals and Vivid. If you’d like to hire one of these skilful people, just contact them and they’ll entertain your children, your employees and your friends.
It’s time to say goodbye to our friends at Juggleart. They’ve been part of the juggling community for many years and it’s sad to see them go. Farewell Juggleart, and best of juggling luck for the future.
If you want to buy juggling balls in Sydney, it’s quite difficult because there are no juggling shops in Sydney. Buying juggling balls from overseas can attract attention from customs, so for juggling balls it’s best to buy from people like balls for your mind
Customs is not very interested in other props, so buying high quality clubs or hats or rings from overseas is no problem. It’s quite easy to buy from places like Oddballs in London, and their prices are not too high. A good quality juggling club should cost about 30-40 dollars (Australian) per club. Our personal favourites are Henry’s Delphins, they’re light and good for numbers juggling.
In other news, it’s almost time for GeniiCon which is going to be the largest ever magic convention in Australia. It will be great. Go along and have a look and learn from the best magicians in the country.
In local juggling news, Marrickville Fire Jam is holding events every Thursday afternoon in Enmore, whilst the local universities and juggling clubs are still holding their weekly get togethers. Check them out.
Even if you don’t have special juggling balls, you can still throw some tennis balls in the air and try to catch them. Juggling is a skill you can try anywhere, it will amuse you, entertain your friends and in desperate times you can even busk for lunch….or rent…which is probably more appropriate for Sydney…
Juggling is Magic….
Juggling balls, rings, clubs, poi, devil sticks or hats is fun, healthy, and exciting and a great activity for kids during the school holidays. Why not attend a juggling workshop, hire a juggler for your kid’s birthday party or simply pick up some juggling balls or clubs to play with? You won’t regret it.
Our Sydney jugglers are currently entertaining people across this beautiful city at corporate events, festivals, fetes, birthday parties and shopping centres. They are professional entertainers with great repertoires and fantastic people skills. A juggler is a unique artist who can provide a wonderful experience for a special event ,why not hire them and see what they can do for you?
Sad news has reached Sydney Jugglers, our friends at Juggleart in Melbourne announced that they are closing after two decades of providing props, listening services, playful interactions, and generosity to the circus community. Before they go they are having a big sale, so make a good buy to say goodbye to this Australian institution. And on behalf of us at Sydney Juggling- Thank you Juggleart.
If you feel inspired you might want to learn how to juggle, and there are lots of places around Sydney where you can do so. Just pop along to have some fun. Swoop Physical Theatre on Sydney’s lovely Northern Beaches is one such place. These highly experienced trainers will provide a great opportunity to learn physical theatre skills in a warm and friendly environment. They hold classes for everybody from children to adults.
And if you want to practise your new skills you can visit one of the friendly juggling clubs around Sydney.
Remember to say ‘hi’ and maybe give some spare change to the hard-working juggling buskers you might see in Sydney. It’s tough being a professional entertainer in this town.
-Hug a juggler today! Because they might hug you back…and teach you how to juggle…
As summer leaves us the jugglers of Sydney are returning home to throw juggling balls, juggling rings and juggling clubs. They’ve been training hard for the new year and are ready to perform for your children’s birthday party, corporate event, fete, fair or celebration. Why not hire a juggler today?
January and February were all about overseas travel with many adventures with Italian and French jugglers. Check out our Instagram page for some amazing European performers. Some preview pictures are above.
And for more incredible jugglers have a look at the IJA tricks of the month.
If you want to buy some new juggling props, try our friends at Oddballs in London, their prices are good for Aussies. Locally, Juggleart is the place to buy your juggling balls. And if you want to learn juggling, or just throw things in the air randomly and pretend it’s juggling ,check out the local juggling clubs.
The universities are back in session, and both Circusoc at UNSW, and SURCAS at the University of Sydney are holding meetings and training sessions regularly. Non students are also welcome to join these sessions. The prices are cheap, and the quality is high.
And sometimes we like to acknowledge magicians too, because they are fellow performers. Happily Sydney has a very vibrant magic scene and in June there will be a huge magic convention which will be a riotously fun event full of….ummmm…..magic!
But remember, juggling is real, whilst magic is only illusionary.
What do Jugglers do on New Years Eve? They juggle. They juggle balls ,juggling rings, juggling clubs, and, sometimes they juggle sparklers. Why not hire a juggler for your next corporate event or kids party and make it a juggling and sparkling New Year for you and your workforce? It’s a great activity that builds trust, teamwork and for kids it’s outrageous fun.
There’s good news and bad news in the Sydney Juggling World. The good news is that our friends Joe Fisher and Kenny Cheung are now officially in the top 40 most popular jugglers in the world. This is the first time that two Australian jugglers have been in the top 40. It’s a great achievement for both of the jugglers and also for Australian juggling. Congratulations !
The bad news is that the Newcastle Juggling Convention has been postponed. Organising a juggling convention is incredibly time consuming and difficult and we know that the people involved in this project really worked hard to get it running for Australia Day. Unfortunately circumstances didn’t come together for that date, but jugglers in Australia are really hoping that the convention can happen later this year.
However, if you are thinking about a convention, why not go to the New Zealand Juggling and Circus Festival? It’s on in February and it’s a great occasion for Australasian jugglers. Details can be found on their webpage.
Our new year resolutions involve juggling (surprise!), and we recommend that you make it one of yours too. There are many great juggling clubs in Sydney, visit one, have fun and become….a juggler!
And remember, juggling lights up your life…..
The year might end, but juggling balls, rings and clubs goes on forever, because there is always something new to learn. And in Sydney there are lots of places you can learn how to juggle.
In great news, our own Kenny Cheung got a highly commended award at the Australian Circus Festival. Congratulations Kenny, your ‘Go’ routine was fantastic. If you want to see this great juggler live, you can hire him or another Sydney entertainer just by visiting our Sydney Jugglers page.
If you happen to be looking for last minute presents for the festive season, think about buying your best friend, crush, child, cousin, mother, brother, sister, lover, husband. wife, partner, significant other, or random stranger, some juggling props. Balls, rings and clubs are all available at numerous places in Australia and overseas.
In other news, the annual vote for the 40 most popular jugglers of 2017 is going on right now and it ends soon. So if you haven’t voted yet, get moving and vote. And don’t forget the amazing jugglers of Oz.
January 26th is getting closer, so it’s time to buy tickets for the Newcastle Juggling Convention. It’s the most fun you can have standing up. It’s cheap, and it doesn’t involve drunken renditions of Waltzing Matilda. If you’re not a juggler you can still go and have a look at the amazing Sagi Bracha who is the international guest. WOW!
In very big news, Cirque du Soleil is holding auditions. Yes CIRQUE DU SOLEIL is holding auditions in Australia. So if you’re a performer, definitely look into this one.
We’ve had a great year at Sydney Juggling, world records, pancakes, EJC, visitors from Japan, visitors from Circussoc, visitors from Mars….(Ok I might have made that one up!) Hoopers, diabolists, hat twirlers, flow artists, athletes, it’s been fun and we’d like to thank everybody who has visited us in person or joined us on Instagram.
We loves youse all…
And we’d like to wish everybody a safe, happy, wonderful and exciting holiday season and a new year full of juggling adventures.
A juggle a day keeps the blues away….
Peace, love and juggling……
