Spanish yoyo champion Daniel Tamariz does the unthinkable and actually breathes legitimately new creative life into the old idea of yoyoing with a juggling ring. This concept has been around for at least 30 years, first performed by Dale Myrberg looping through sewing hoops, and then by myself and Sky Kiyabu in the late 90s using juggling rings as an extra mount point. But I’ve gotta say, this is by far the best iteration of the concept that I’ve ever seen, and I can’t wait to see where else Daniel takes it.
“The French Connection” is a juggling video by Piet van Steen and Albrecht Brunner featuring 16 jugglers from France and Germany. It contains juggling, passing and balancing, rolling and site-swapping. All the money from the selling goes into the organisation of the first juggling convention in Halle, Germany.

Back in April we posted a video of PanGottic’s R&D session for their work-in-progress show, “Logic of Nothing”. The video showed juggler Matt Pang working through a variety of concepts for the final stage show…well, now you get a look at how the final show turned out.
The set for this is brilliant, and it looks like the execution was spot-on. As a performer, it’s really hard to imagine depending this heavily of so many props and machines that could go wrong, but Pang spent so much time developing this show you can tell it was second nature to him by the time he hit the stage. Amazing work!
Juggler Tony Pezzo has released a new 45-minute juggling video called “The Third”, and we’ve got a trailer for it.
Tony is part of the Swedish juggling scene, alongside such luminaries as Jay Gilligan and Wes Peden. He’s a fantastic and unique juggler, and definitely worth dropping a few bucks on this new video if you’re looking for some visual inspiration.
The video is 15 Euros to download, and available only at TonyPezzo.com.
- Over 150 new tricks
- 250 Penguin catches
- Tony’s first good mixed prop routine
- Some of Wes Peden’s best 3 club tricks, but with rings
- New 3 ring routine
- His favorite trick; The Five Ring Faceroll Take Off Put Back, with the Multiplex Pancake
We just got some lousy news from the folks at Dubé Juggling…looks like they lost their lease, haven’t been able to find a new space, and will be putting everything into storage indefinitely until they figure out how to resume operations. Established in 1975, Dubé Juggling is one of the most well-respected juggling prop manufacturers in the world, and their equipment is used by Cirque du Soleil, Penn and Teller, David Blaine, Ringling Brothers Circus, The Big Apple Circus, and many, many more.
Dubé Juggling Equipment and Troo Hoops has lost our lease. We will be moving our entire inventory and equipment into storage and suspending operations until future notice. At this time, we do not have space or a specific timetable for resumption of service, but notification will be made on our websites and by email.
If you need equipment, order as soon as possible. Orders will not be shipped after December 30, 2013. Our last day at 520 Broadway will be January 6, 2014. We will be open every day until January 6, packing and moving. We will be open for retail sales with limited staff – sales will be limited to whatever stock is available and not yet moved into storage. Act accordingly!
Juggler Luke Hallgarten put together a great club juggling video…really fluid style, nice tricks, and with great filming and editing by Piers van Looy.
If you enjoyed Greg’s proof-of-concept video with two magnetic squares, you’ll dig his next evolution of the concept using four of his self-designed and built magnetic props.
Here’s something juggling is getting a lot of lately that is kind of inherently impossible with yoyos…completely new props. Juggling legend Greg Kennedy shows off some object manipulation concepting with two magnetic squares that he designed and built himself. It’s fascinating to watch the progression from absolute basic movement to the more complicated combinations that the video eventually ends with, and it’s a solid piece of inspiration for any yoyo players looking for new ideas in trick construction.
Legendary juggler Greg Kennedy nails a seemingly impossible trick in his “juggling cone”, a 9-ball pirouette.
Jugglers will appreciate how technically insane this is. Yoyo players should probably just be impressed that this guy is basically juggling in the walls of a giant blender. If you’re unfamiliar with Greg’s juggling cone, here’s another video that should blow your mind. (Note, the sound is kind of jenky, so just turn it down and listen to something else. Trust me on this.)
Ryan Mellors, Keith Marshall, and Valery Imus put together a really inspiring juggling video with some unique concepts for Master Ong’s Prop Shop. Enjoy!
Patrik Elmnert (Sweden) and Wes Peden (USA) are two young men with short hair and kneepads. In 2008 they started creating juggling together and went on to perform shows in Spain, Ireland, Finland, Norway, USA, Germany, Poland, England, Italy, and for the royal family of Sweden. Their juggling is scandinavian in aesthetic and playful in nature. With the use of space, bodies, time, and objects these two jugglers build a unique and vibrant atmosphere.
The new flamboyant juggling show from Patrik and Wes has jumps and slides that you’ll like and secret tricks that might turn you on. Throwing, lifting, and pushing each other combined with juggling objects flying around their bodies creates giant movements and bizarre twisted tricks. When confronted with the juxtaposition of a 14 club eruption and the single balance ring rolling lightly from forehead to forehead, the viewer can not help but think that perhaps giraffes are not as tall as they look.
