Juggling

Instructor: Stuart Celarier

Learn to juggle! An incredible variety of juggling and related forms await you including flow arts, circus arts, and object manipulation. Equipment is provided. Students start with learning 3-ball juggling, and are given the opportunity to explore in many directions including 3-ball tricks, partner juggling, adding more balls, club juggling and passing, diabolo, poi, staff, hoops, rolling globe, unicycle, and more. Individual instruction and small group instruction allows students to progress in different directions, and informal mini-workshops introduce new skills each term.

Juggling has been offered at Reed since 1979, which has fostered a vibrant and dedicated juggling community in Portland. The local jugglers host the Portland Juggling Festival at Reed College, a weekend filled with workshops, special guests and shows. The festival, which is free to the Reed community, attracts 500 jugglers and has been featured in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.
