A juggling pattern or juggling trick is a specific combination of manipulations of props while juggling (usually toss juggling). At its simplest level, a juggling pattern can normally be defined as a sequence of various throws using a certain number of props. At a more advanced level, juggling patterns can involve (depending on the props used) different types of throw, flourishes, moves using different parts of the body such as the feet and head, bouncing props off surfaces, and even moves requiring two or more people. One system of notation that attempts to describe juggling tricks is siteswap notation, though even this is limited in the complexity of patterns it can define.
