Learn to Juggle Five Balls - Arthur Dick

Finally, if you have a good handle on all the patterns previously described, you may want to attempt five balls. Again, keep in mind that this is an extremely difficult trick, and will take a lot of time to learn. I've been juggling for almost ten years (albeit on and off, mostly off) and I still can't do much more than a five ball standing flash. [Update Nov 5, 2004, 80+ catches]

But for those who do want to give it a try, here are the steps I've taken (and continue to practice with) to get where I am now. None of these steps are set in stone, it's best to just give it a try and figure out what works best for you. Good luck!

  1. 2 Balls out of a 5-Cascade
  2. Flash
  3. 3 Ball Snake
  4. Throw 4 out of 5
  5. 5-Cascade
