Ideal for the beginner: all the basics in sequence, with each move clearly presented, and looped for study in the appendix so you won't have to ride the VCR remote. Ideal for the expert: enough advanced moves to keep you busy for months. This is the contact juggling video you've been waiting for! A great visual guide to the only book on this subject (James Ernest's Contact Juggling
but with more tricks and its own special perspective. Region-free DVD, 60 minutes plus special DVD features. Excerpt from a review by Ryan Mellors
"Contact Juggling: Part One" is an instructional video for beginner and intermediate contact jugglers that compliments and expands upon James Ernest's book, Contact Juggling
. It is, for the most part, straightforward, presenting twenty-one basic tricks ranging from butterflies and back-back transfers to more complicated body rolls, head catches and palm-spins. Side by side with James Ernest's book, the video provides enough variety to set any beginner well on their way, yet also offers enough techical insight to improve even the most seasoned contact veteran. Even without James Ernest's book, "Contact Juggling: Part One" stands alone as being one of the only high quality instructional videotapes for contact juggling on the market today; something that the contact community has been waiting for...The video leaves the performance aspect of contact juggling open and untouched, thus encouraging creativity and innovation in the individual juggler rather than presenting a single method to imitate.
