Juggling is not only a fun skill to learn, but it’s also an excellent way to improve coordination, relieve stress, clear your mind, and get moving. This workshop will focus on the basics of juggling and its benefits, including how juggling can promote balance in our lives. Participants will learn good technique, body awareness, and different juggling patterns and choreographic sequences.
This workshop is bilingual.
Bekka Rose is a contemporary circus artist, performer and instructor based in Montreal. Her technique has developed over a lifetime of training, from children’s classes at Cirkids in Vancouver, to residencies in Berlin and Stockholm, to the professional degree program at the Quebec Circus School, from which Bekka graduated in 2013. She has performed around the world in productions ranging from stage performances to cabarets to street shows to film and television.
Each participant will need 3 round objects and comfortable clothing.
Example: small oranges, limes, or any round fruit you don’t mind dropping, other small balls with a bit of weight (it’s preferable to avoid hollow objects like tennis balls), or make your own with balloons and rice using any online tutorial.
Objects should be small enough so participants can comfortably hold 2 in 1 hand.
