Dan is pretty amazing. I met him in the local juggling club here.

I love this guy!!!  He is truly amazing and a nice guy.  I have been fortunate to meet him at some of the IJA festivals. I remember him on a lot of TV shows like this one from an old Johnny Carson clip.  Does he live down near you, kevinm?  My son is in Winston-Salem and I get down there every once in a while.

I just saw some of his other videos and he is really good and very funny. I will give his 5-ball tutorial a try (5-ball is high on my new year's resolutions list  ::) ).

The club is in Raleigh and apparently there are quite a few expert jugglers around here. I decided to learn how to juggle last year and it has been a real slog.. probably I shouldn’t have waited til I was in my mid 60s..
Ta0, this is a new tutorial on 5 ball juggling, I think it might be a good one.

Thanks Kevin! That's great!

Taylor Glenn and Mark Hayward are almost the only people in the whole 2020 Guinness Book of World Records that have a whole page to themselves. She has the record for most different 3-ball tricks in one minute.

Jeez, I can't play piano that well with my hands, and I've had lots of lessons! His control is absolutely astounding.

You do know that it's a trick, right?  He's not really playing the piano by hitting the necessary keys with the balls.

I'll tell you how it's done, if you want....

Exactly.  It doesn't matter at all where you hit the keyboard.  You only need to provide the rhythm and timing....

I suppose now you would say it’s a “trick” juggling 36 rolls of toilet paper. Keep in mind though, these are double rolls, that’s like 72 regular rolls!

That Koma juggling is unreal, I subscribe to his Instagram!
Here is another 5 ball tutorial for you, not quite as basic.

Thought this one would be of interest since we are talking about 5 ball juggling
