"The little trick of getting three objects to dance around in your hands has always managed to keep a small sense of magic...It's one form of insanity we feel everyone has a right to experience."

Bring your own props or share in our studio equipment. No street shoes allowed in the main space so wear your nice socks (or don't … see if we care)
Visitors:
Visitors are always welcome to come and share in the night.
Notes:
  • All clubs open to the public, all levels welcome
  • Clubs are not classes or formal groups, rather places for people who share a common interest to get together and practice.
  • That said, most people are happy to teach newcomers how to juggle, explain tricks, and give pointers, but then you'll be expected to go work on them yourself.
  • Bring your own props if you have them. If you don't, please ask before borrowing anything you see lying around, but many people are willing, when asked, to lend visitors props they're not using at the time.
  • That said, don't count on using other people's stuff too long. Soon you'll need to buy your own equipment.
  • Finally, many jugglers ignore each other (and you) while practicing. We're not mean; we're busy. Feel free to introduce yourself, but please respect other people's practice time. We usually go out to dinner to socialize after the Thursday meeting, and all jugglers are invited.
That said, hope to see you there.
