Isn’t Juggling a Solo Thing?

Yes, but Partner Juggling is not! It can serve to break down social barriers and provide the opportunity to create positive relationships and resolve tensions through the interaction. Partner juggling helps people come together by providing a common focus and goal.

Can Anyone Do This?

Absolutely. While there are countless variations on juggling, everyone can gain satisfaction and reap the benefits of this practice by juggling even 1 ball.  Typically, most people learn to partner juggle with 4 balls within an hour or two.

How Will This Help My Team?

Researchers and physicians believe that juggling is an active form of meditation that strengthens mental focus and stimulates brain growth and cognitive power.

A strong and effective modern workplace is an environment created by people who develop the ability to juggle whatever comes their way in collaboration with their team-mates to better master any situation.

What Will This Workshop Be Like?

Participants are paired up into teams of two and are then set to the task of creating their own juggling balls from the materials provided.  Once the teams have created enough balls, participants are shown the basics of partner juggling. Partners stand facing each other with a ball in each hand and learn to partner juggle by simultaneously throwing and passing in a circular pattern.

Why Partner Juggling?

The Partner Juggling Workshop was developed by John Crowley and Diane Gentile to break down communication barriers and build trust and cooperation between high school students. It was so successful that a corporate team-building workshop has emerged and is proving to be extraordinary successful.

It is a powerful experience that brings people together through highly interactive and engaging teamwork, leaving participants with a strong sense of achievement, collaboration, and connectedness.

Participants are challenged to overcome personal fears and anxieties as we go to the core of relationship-building and, in a surprisingly unconventional way, nurture and develop a stronger sense of team and community.
