2 feet of heavy snow didn't stop the Bryant Park Jugglers from getting the job done on Monday...

This just in...Canada and Germany send pictures and video...

Last week we received a video and four pictures from Mark in Canada.

He writes:

'Very Entertaining'


Today I got a email and pictures from Germany that read:

'Dear Alex!
In memory of a friendly encounter in NY I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Greetings from Torsten (Germany)'

Pictures, from when the ice rink was under construction...

2010 Juggling Retrospective

Here we have a week off, and we realized that this blog was started about four months too late.  We were juggling all summer, and we have the pictures and stories to prove it.

December 20-24

Hi Ho Everyone!
We are taking the week off from juggling on the Blue.   One of our principals is on vacation and the other is having a very busy week at work.

We received a Holiday card from the Park!  That was a first, getting a card from a park.  Ha!

We should be back in action on the 27th.

A POI-fect day

We've enjoyed Bryant park will all types of people.  We've seen juggling and club spinning, diabolo, contact juggling, hula-hooping, flare bartending, unicycling, and even the occasional POI Expert. This past Monday we had a very talented POI practitioner getting in on the action. He is currently writing a software application to highlight all possible POI maneuvers.

Cold day again out there next to the ice.  We had a good showing though, despite the weather.  Seth, me, Jonathan, David 'Jugglestar' Fraiden, and a few folks who stopped by to learn.

A surprisingly busy day.  Deslyn and Penda stopped by.  We had Elisabetta, an Italian psychiatrist/arialist, who stayed they entire time.  She had seen us on the Bryant Park web site.  Seth, Jonathan, and Alex were there.  We had an experienced juggler in Nick as visitor.  We had a handful of learners stopping by, as well as many photographers.  We are hoping for a good return on the five or six cards we passed out. 
27 degrees at 12:45PM

36 Degrees Farenheit.  That is what Amy told us in the park today.  Amy is a young woman from Queensborough Community College, who joined us today for juggling in the park.  She took about fifteen minutes to get the basic pattern, and then stayed for the rest of the hour.  We were well-attended for such a cold day as well.  Seth, David, Jonathan and Will were all there.  A girl named Kelsey stopped by with two older female relations, she already knew how to juggle.  I showed her a few more tricks, and one of her companions slipped a $5 bill into my hand as they were walking away.  I have started a fund of the random money people give us in the park.  The fund stands now at $14.  I am not sure what we will do with it, but it is good to have something.
