Single Class Course
A short course designed to provide offices working remotely to have an opportunity to gather online and do something fun. 3 ball juggling is especially good at this because it provides a platform for comedy judging of each other's earnest attempts at juggling tricks. I will take you through the basic techniques of juggling before splitting people into teams to try and do their own version. We will reconvene to compare the chosen champion of each team and what they have learnt. We will do this for 3 different ball juggling tricks and have a lot of fun in the process.
The format of the course is that I will demonstrate each part and then split the group into different teams for each challenge, allowing different team members to bond with different people they work with. We will then have a discussion about each challenge culminating in some gentle teasing about everyone's juggling attempts.
You will need to book this at least 2 weeks in advance to give everyone the opportunity to order juggling balls. Alternatively, I can organise this and send a starter pack to all participants, for an additional fee or people can particialte using household objects like tennis balls or apples.
No experience is necessary. Open to everyone, although anyone with limited movement or other disabilities of the arms or hands may need special consideration.
Things we will learn during this course:
1) 1 ball tricks - various throws and catches around the body
2) Head balance competition with comedy movements
3) Fun 2 ball tricks with group feedback section and comedy competition
4) 3 ball trick demionstration
5) Theory of how to do 3 balls using an invisible friend
5) 3 ball practice and show and tell
I was a professional freelance circus arts performer for 10 years and ran my own entertainment agency. I have worked all over the UK and taken many team-building workshops with this format and with circus skills workshops and balloon modelling. See my other listing where I do a balloon modelling team building workshop. I have been to many juggling conventions across Europe and was the main organiser of the annual British Juggling Convention in 2007.
I was a professional freelance circus entertainer for 10 years and have lots of different skills in this area. But balloon modelling and juggling were always my favourites.
BALLOON MODELLING - You can learn some really fun basic balloon models on my balloon modelling course.
We will start with how to blow up, tie and twist a balloon. And then progress to doing basic balloon models.
The basics of balloon modelling are pretty simple, but it takes a lot of practice to get it just right and make the balloon model look as realistic as possible. To start with we will do the most basic balloon model of a dog. But then move on to do a 2 balloon model: the FLOWER.
By the end, you will have learnt the basics of balloon modelling and how to pinch and twist to make simple folds and connections. This course is open to anyone but generally, it needs working hands to do all the pinching and twisting so probably not suitable for anyone with mobility or dexterity issues with their hands.
3 BALL JUGGLING - working up from some fun one ball tricks and games then onto the theory of juggling using only two balls and then trying 3 balls but with managed expectations.
TEAM BUILDING - You can also book the Balloon Modelling activity and 3 balls juggling as a Team Building Session. So please check out my FREE 30mins intro courses, or book onto my longer paid course and get in touch if you have any questions.
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
