Durham City Jugglers has moved.

The club has been housed in Shakespeare Hall in Durham for 28 years, but unfortunately the Hall is closing so we have had to find a new home. So from 10 March 2024 Durham City Jugglers can be found at Vane Tempest Hall in Gilesgate, Durham.

We are also changing the night from Tuesday to Sunday! we will be meeting between 6:30 and 8:30pm.

We are actually really excited about the change, Shakespeare hall always had problems with parking and was becoming unsavoury outside as people poured out of the bus station and cheap pubs... now we have a lovely old hall that has it's own car park. The Hall even boasts it's own ghost (actually a few of them).

Hope to see you there.

All the luck to you that those ghost will be pleased with your practise!

CircusLeeds -

Hi everyone!

We're CircusLeeds, formerly known as Leeds Children’s Circus. We’ve been around since 1989 and now offer classes for both children and adults, hence the name change. We are a registered charity run by a mixture of amazing volunteers and superb circus artists who are passionate about circus, community and bringing people together to have fun!

We offer a safe and supportive environment for everyone in Leeds and beyond to learn the art of circus skills. From learning to juggle for the first time to taking part in really challenging aerial practice, there’s something for everyone.

We run circus skills and aerial classes for beginners, improvers, children, and adults. Regular classes, workshops, performances and projects take place at our base in Harehills Lane Baptist Church in Leeds where we have a very large cupboard full of circus kit: from diablo to unicycles, tight-wire to juggling balls, there’s lots of stuff to try out. Upstairs in the gym, we run aerial classes where we teach trapeze, silks, and hoop.

Check us out: www.circusleeds.org.uk 😊

Hi, welcome to Juggling Edge, it is really good to hear of a circus/juggling club in Yorkshire that is thriving.

Do you want to update the listing for Circus Leeds (Leeds Childrens Circus) in the Juggling Edge Club listings www.jugglingedge.com/club.php?ClubID=1688 . If you add yourself as organiser you should be able to edit it.
Then hopefully even more circus enthusiasts in Leeds will be able to find you.

Best of luck with all your classes :)

Hi Erik, welcome to the Edge.

Heyya!

I'm Matt form the KC area and I have only been jugging for about 3 years, but I've been dancing for over 20 and spinning stuff for about 13. Right now I'm trying to learn some new stuff with clubs, still trying to get my head around a 3 poi pendulum cascade and trying to clean up some of my 3 ball patterns. I started going to my local juggle club about half a year ago and it's been pretty great! I started trying to do some partner passing with rings but I'm not great at that yet, it's pretty fun!

Hope yall have a good day!

The Void - - Parent

Hi Matt,
Welcome. KC= Kansas City, I assume. I wondered if pendulum cascade was the same as Mike's Mess, but I looked it up and it's not. Maybe you can add that one to your list for later. Good luck, and keep having fun.

Welcome, Matt!

York Jugglers -

Chocfest! This Saturday is York's Annual One Day Juggling Convention - Chocfest! You are all very welcome to the first festival in the UKs 2024 juggling convention calendar and the most chocolatey.

There will be juggling space, workshops, evening show, juggling games as well as a boardgaming and socialising space with free tea and coffee (don't forget to bring your mug).

This year there is a £5 discount for adults who enter a cake into the Chocfest Chocolate Cake Contest (there were only 3 entrants last year, so maybe the chances of coming in the top three might be high again) - the chocolate cake entries will be shared with the audience in the show interval.

More information on our website www.chocfest.net - looking forward to seeing you all

Denie Kony -

Hey ya’ll!
I am Denie (she/her)! I got back to juggling after many years and I am just slowly getting back to shape. I juggle with balls and got myself clubs last month. I have also been a dancer for over 15 years and would like to bridge that to my juggling. Still no idea how to do that, but that’s why I am here! Any tips are much appreciated <3
Been looking at Liza van Brakel, Ricardo S. Mendes and Kouta Oohashi so far for inspiration, still no clue how to do anything similiar to what they do.
Anw happy to be here.

The Void - - Parent

Hi Denie, welcome.
Not a dancer myself, but Gandini Juggling have been incorporating dance/movement with juggling for years now. You might like to check out some of their vids. https://juggling.tv/users/616/Gandini

Thanks for the tip! Will check it out!

Hi, welcome to the site,

Have you looked in to contact juggling (aka object manipulation) ? I ask because it's the kind of thing I imagine would go well with dancing.

Someone else for you to find videos of would be Viktor Kee, I tend to think of some of his stuff as kind of dance-y and artsy.

Enjoy learning new things !

How do I ressurrect and update club listing when it classed as defunct? UCL Juggling club survived COVID but moved to a Tuesday. Is the approach to just start a new club in the listings page? That would lose the history of this one including the members down as alumuni.

Nick

Mïark - - Parent

Hi Nick,

is this the listing? https://jugglingedge.com/club.php?ClubID=1343

To edit you need to have organiser status; to get that: change your status from Regular Member to Organiser and wait for that to be approved by one of the current Organisers already listed on that page or by one of the Juggling Edge admins.
Once approved as Organiser you are free to edit it (approval depends on how quick they respond - might take some hours)
I think the Organiser(s) gets an email telling them that someone is seeking approval (but I could be wrong about that) otherwise they will see an alert when they next log in to Juggling Edge

Don't worry about the title Organiser, it doesn't mean you claim to be the person running the club, just the person responsible for keeping the listing on Juggling Edge up-to-date

I think is better to update the old page rather than start a new to save confusion, glad to hear a club has survived the Covid Lockdown

Nick Huxley - - Parent

Thanks Miark,

this is indeed the club. I managed to fudge the correct URL to say it is alive by using the one I get for the Peckham club as a template.

I can set myself as an Organiser but I don't think any of the people labelled as Organiser are even still there to approve it. The current actual organiser is also called Nick funnily enough.

Hi Nick,
Wanna see some ancient history thereof?

I always knew you'd been a member but didn't know if you actually studied at UCL. Apparently I am the longest attending member having first gone some time around 2007. This is amusing as I never went to UCL for any part of my tertiary education as I went to another university and ran the club there, as Dave Barnes can attest to and indeed yourself as I'm sure you went to at least one convention I ran. The really odd part is that I've been going so long that my daughter is now older than some of the students...
I am actually in the process of trying to start up a new juggling club, but this time on the Isle of Wight. I suspect I'll have to subsidise the whole thing but then I am not a student anymore and can probably afford it. I am impressed by how white you've managed to keep that t-shirt.

The Void - - Parent

I never studied at UCL, I just ran the juggling club for a year, 'cos stuff happens. And yes, I went up NW in 2004. The tee has been buried in a draw for decades, and has just gone back. :-) Good luck with IOW.
