Juggling—the noble art of jesters and fools. Here's how you can work your way up from juggling one ball to three.


Step 1: Assume the postion
Stand in a comfortable stance with your feet shoulder-width apart and your elbows bent at about a 90-degree angle.

Step 2: Start with one ball
Start by practicing throwing one ball back and forth between your hands in a nice, gentle arc. You want to keep your elbows in and your throws consistent, with the ball arcing at about eye level.

Tip
Using beanbags when you first begin can be helpful, since they won't roll away when you drop them!

Step 3: Practice with your eyes closed
You'll probably find that your throws go awry a little at the beginning, so keep practicing until you can throw the ball back and forth with your eyes closed.

Step 4: Add another ball
Add another ball. With one in each hand, throw a ball as before and—before it comes down—throw the other ball underneath so it lands in your other hand. Practice catching both balls.

Tip
As you practice, alternate starting with either hand.

Step 5: Add a third ball
Put two balls in your dominant hand and one in the opposite hand. Toss the balls just as before, but add a third throw right before the second ball comes down. Keep practicing until you can make three throws and three catches.

Step 6: Keep throwing and catching
Once you're confident catching all three balls, add a fourth throw and catch, and a fifth one, and so on... Don't look now, but you're juggling!

Did You Know?
Did you know? 'Joggling,' jogging while juggling, is becoming a popular sport, and in 2007 a joggler finished a Toronto marathon in two hours and 50 minutes—while juggling three balls.
