Contact Juggling

Contact juggling is a form of object manipulation that focuses on the movement of objects in contact with the body. It involves the rolling of one or more objects without releasing them into the air. It is divided into three main techniques: Body rolling means manipulating one or more props around the hands, arms, and other parts of the body.

Palm spinning means manipulating one or more balls in the open hand so that at least one ball is in motion. Balls may be in both hands or transferred between hands to form graceful and fluid patterns, including rotating a pyramid made of four or five balls in one hand.

Isolation refers to the manipulation of a ball so that it appears to be suspended in place, creating the effect that the ball is still while the performer moves around the ball.

I placed this three minute video link of a master juggler at the end, so you did not get distracted from the rest of the interesting tidbits above. LINK
