This is a one-off session giving you the opportunity to meet me, ask questions and explore how I teach juggling. You will learn what you will need to start your juggling journey and why juggling is so beneficial for both physical and mental health! This is an informal session where you will be invited to ask questions and get a feel for my juggling and teaching style!

The Three Ball Cascade is the most basic juggling pattern, and the first trick any would-be juggler should learn. The Cascade is generally considered to be the easiest pattern and forms the backbone of many other tricks. To begin learning the pattern, it is important to make sure you are comfortable with throwing and catching a ball. To begin learning the pattern, it is important to make sure you are comfortable with throwing and catching a ball. It sounds silly, I know, but when first starting to juggle I found that my left hand (non-dominant) had a hard time accurately throwing the ball to my right. 

Congratulations, after this taster class you are not an official juggler. But you will have enough knowledge to try it. You need t practice, practice and practice till it really becomes easy for you. This is just the beginning, there are still countless more patterns out there for you to try. Browse through my other juggling courses to find some cool new tricks to learn.

About Me

I have been teaching throughout my career and have spent some time specialising in breaking down complex skills and patterns for anyone to learn, whether it be balancing, learning to juggle or playing historic games! I love sharing my passions and infuse every lesson with a sense of fun, building skills up from the basics and going at your pace.

Approx 20 years ago was the start of my career as a circus workshop leader and entertainer. I have since built a full-time business to be able to provide complete educational and sometimes historical family areas under the Fiery Jack umbrella.

I started out as a professional chef with a view to owning my own business when I was sidetracked by the Circus and made a conscious decision in my mid-20's to follow my dreams and make it my career choice. I have been on many courses for performance and movement. I have also attended courses on teaching SEND. And still, 20 years later I regularly workshop ideas with other instructors, keeping me in the loop of any changes within the Circus and Juggling Community. I regularly attend conventions and have played a part in organising, performing in and creating European Juggling Conventions.

I teach all ground-based circus skills like club balancing, juggling, staff spinning and poi - and... I am also a specialist in ancient historic games such as hnefetafl (Viking chess) and 9 men's morris!

Each Learned.Live teacher is awarded a 4 star review for every one of their courses we have approved, in line with our assessment. This is why some teachers will display more than one 4 star review from Learned.Live if they have had multiple courses rigorously assessed by our team. We would not approve a course application if we did not feel it warranted a default 4 star review. Teacher star ratings are an average of each of their courses star ratings and will become modified as more students review their course(s) over time.
