Fire Juggling at the plaza

Recently I performed a stage show in Punggol town, in the northeastern part of Singapore. I was there to entertain the audience at a celebratory event ahead of Singapore's 50th National Day.

Colour Worx D & P took some beautiful photos during the event. I especially like this one taken of me juggling Fire Torches during my show.

More photos of the event can be viewed on Colour Worx D & P's Facebook page.

Cirque du Soleil's Top 5

Cirque du Soleil revolutionised the circus some 30 years ago, transforming circus shows into theatrical productions that captivate people's imagination all over the world. Many circus shows, including those by Cirque du Soleil, feature a juggling act; there is almost always a juggling act in any circus show. It could either be a solo juggling act or an act performed by a juggling troupe.

Cirque du Soleil has just released a video featuring the Top 5 Juggling Acts from their shows over the years. In the video, the Top 5 juggling acts are:
  1. Anthony Gatto in "Kooza"
  2. Viktor Kee in "Amaluna"
  3. Teslenko Jugglers in "Corteo"
  4. Gabriel Beaudoin in "Kurios"
  5. Greg Kennedy in "Totem"

I'm not surprised to see that Anthony Gatto is at the top of the list because he is a juggling prodigy. Having watched Anthony Gatto perform his juggling acts both on recorded videos and onstage in Las Vegas (I was seated fairly close to the stage), it's clear to me that he is the greatest performing juggler of our time.

Thanks to Cirque Club for presenting the video!

Juggling in Primary Schools

It's that time of the year again in Singapore, when primary schools hold Open House events to help parents choose primary schools for their children. Last Saturday, I was at such an event in a primary school; I was there to help the school promote its holistic approach to education. 

As a performing juggler, I used the activity of Juggling to illustrate to parents and children how the school guides its pupils to develop a positive outlook; resilience; self-awareness; and a conscious focus on learning. Here is a video clip of my exhibition space.

I'm at a Primary School open house event this morning. Educators here recognise that Juggling is beneficial for both children and adults. :-)

The benefits of juggling are recognised by the educators in this school. On top of that, I was delighted that even after most of the visitors had left, many pupils and some teachers dropped by the exhibition space to discover more about Juggling from me.

Spin around and catch!

Posted this video clip of my practice session yesterday. In it, I spin round as I juggle the yellow balls continuously.  While juggling, I toss first one, then two, and finally all three balls into the air - and catch them as I come around towards the front at the end of my spin.

Spin round and catch ~ today's practice made me drip with perspiration.
