Today the park was perfectly weathered with the temperature being a comfortable 65 degrees Fahrenheit and some clouds in the sky. The ground was slightly wet but that just helped to reduce the amount dust from our newly acquired spot in the park. We have recently, within the past 2 weeks, been given a location at the southwest corner of the park behind the Bank of America Winter Village.
The Friday day juggle is a 3 hour event running from
12 noon till 3PM EST. All types of juggling are welcome to all Bryant Park
Juggler events; ball juggling, club juggling, ring juggling, diablo, devil
sticks, contact juggling, balancing, combination juggling, or any other form of
object manipulation. All skill sets are always welcome from beginner to advanced
or even professional. Beginners are usually quickly greeted by another juggler
to help them develop or hone a skill. It
can even be said that the Bryant Park Jugglers are world renowned for being
friendly teachers of the ancient art of juggling / object manipulation.
This writer was only able to stay for about an hour
today but there was still plenty of juggling going on upon my departure. During
the juggle today there was Alex, Jordan, Seth, Olga, Amanda, Kourtney, Ann,
David, Naomi, Leonard, Valentine, and some others I am not able to name. Anyone
that showed up for the juggle, that did not get an honorable mention here,
please write in or comment so we can add you to the list in an update to this
Jordan, Seth, Olga, and Alex were practicing a very
nice club passing pattern of “round about”. Seth also worked on his 5 and 7 balls cascades. Kourtney and Naomi were busy
working on their 3 ball cascade. Ann worked with David to advance his 3 ball
cascade skills. Valentine was practicing various 3 club and 4 club patterns.
Leonard worked on his 3 ball box pattern. Curtis was back after a month away to
work on his 3 club tricks. Amanda was working on her 3 / 4 ball patterns and
some 3 club patterns.
All said and done it was great afternoon that was
only saddened by having to go back to work. This post will conclude this week’s
blog. There are some pictures from today added at the end of this post. This is
The Juggling Ghost Writer wishing everyone a pleasant and safe weekend!
