Can you remember your very first ever juggling trick?
[ *If you don't remember well, feel free to chose which you think it was most likely.* ]
Somehow, juggling had never occurred to me as a kid, so I don't think I ever did 2b in one hand, nor a 2b shower. The person who taught me just said "start with the hand with two, and keep throwing under the other ball", so I didn't try 330 until later, either.
I've never really thought of the 2b cascade (with two hands) as juggling. Yes, it's throwing balls but you don't really get the 'juggling feeling' until 3b cascade I think?
Agreed - one more prop than you have hands. So I'd count 1 hd 2b.
( But for sure 2b + bodythrows or 2b + trick handmoves, or + contact is "juggling"! Seen that way, "juggling" starts with 1 prop and is a big big topic. ) Maybe it's the moment where you give up focus on a thrown (or rolled, whatever) prop, 'let loose', and use the flighttime to do sth else.
& a 0prop juggling pantomime is on the border to juggling blind :o) .. with as many imagined props as you can handle Xo])
Correction - Apologies I meant the 2b shower (not cascade). Like LP mentioned, 2b shower doesn't really seem to inspire. The juggling begins that moment the third cascade throw is released.. I think. I can still remember that 'moment'.
I never thought of doing the cascade as doing a trick. The first tricky trick I learned was the factory. Which made me push my 2 in one hand skill and columns skill, but I had never really practiced them until someone showed me the factory.
I can remember clearly doing a 2 ball shower with rounders balls when I was in the last year of primary school (about 29 years ago)
But that is at least 5 years before what I usually think of as learning to juggle.
This poll has now ended. The results are:
Found this little 3b shower, then 4b shower, before ever knowing the cascade pattern story by Havaard Hvidsten in an everydayjuggler's interview to fit in here: https://youtu.be/teCxNm9VpXY?start=215 [about a minute and half to listen to]
