Sydney Juggling

Sydney Juggling- March for Juggling….

 

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.

Happy juggling.

Happy Juggling New Year

 

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…..

Sydney Juggling- Spring is for Jugglers

Jugglers in Sydney love spring.  The sun is shining, the birds are singing and there are lots of great  shows where we can entertain people by juggling balls, rings and clubs and anything else that happens to be nearby.

If you’re hosting a kid’s party, a corporate event or simply want to celebrate the return of flowers, kookaburras and warm weather, you should hire a Sydney juggler to make it an even hotter occasion.

This time of year is so exciting because there are so many juggly and circussy things happening.

Locally, the University of NSW Circus Society is holding an extravaganza at Studio One Sydney from September 14-16. It’s called, Out of Line: A Story of Misadventures, and will be a showcase of acrobatics, aerial work and juggling. It’s guaranteed to be fun with lots of young circus performers doing weird stuff. Pop along for a fabulous night out.

Then in Melbourne, from September 21-22, the International Juggling Association is holding its Oceania Regional Competition. Some of the best jugglers in the world will be competing for the honour of being the Oceania Juggling Champion. This will be an incredible display of the most accomplished jugglers in our region.

Afterwards you might want to visit the Melbourne Juggling Convention, held in Collingwood from September 22-25.

Finally, our great friends at Juggling TV are holding a fantastic competition where jugglers can win prizes for just sending in videos. The prizes are from Oddballs, our favourite international juggling shop, where you can buy almost anything juggly or hoopy or diablo-ey. They also post worldwide, so Aussie Jugglers don’t miss out.

Remember if you want to practice for your Juggling TV video or for the IJA you can come and join us for meetups once a week in the inner city of Sydney. Or if you are interested in watching us in action you can have a sticky beak (look) at our instagram page.

And as they say in Vlagtwedde,
