A Young Man Performs Some Incredible Contact Juggling
We're all familiar with the sport of juggling, which we probably associate with small balls or bowling pins, but this is quite the different beast. This young performer is showing off his impressive skills in the realm of contact juggling, accompanied by some street musicians. Contact juggling is not what you might expect when you hear "juggling," but, rest assured, it can be even more mesmerizing to watch.
Contact juggling is an activity that requires the manipulation of an object, or objects, like the acrylic ball that this young man uses. As opposed to the traditional form of juggling, also called toss juggling, the items used in contact juggling remain on some part of the performer's body. A contact juggler does not just simply hold the item in question - he or she uses sleight of hand to make it appear as though it is floating and flying on its own accord.
