Juggling Pattern

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.

Famous quotes containing the words pattern and/or juggling:

    It was her stern necessity: all things
    Are of one pattern made; bird, beast, and flower,
    Deceive us, seeming to be many things,
    And are but one. Beheld far off, they differ
    As God and devil; bring them to the mind,
    They dull its edge with their monotony.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Communication is a continual balancing act, juggling the conflicting needs for intimacy and independence. To survive in the world, we have to act in concert with others, but to survive as ourselves, rather than simply as cogs in a wheel, we have to act alone.
    Deborah Tannen (20th century)
