Thom Wall is among the world’s most notable jugglers — and now he’s able to offer his tips and tricks to enthusiasts of all levels. On Monday, he released his latest book: “Juggling: What It Is and How to Do It.”
His travels near and far with the Cirque du Soleil inspired this literary endeavor. He would teach juggling tricks to the ushers and popcorn vendors, figuring out what works best when explaining contemporary juggling techniques.
“A lot of people say, ‘Oh, I could never learn how to juggle. I just don’t have the coordination.’ … That’s absolutely not true. The coordination [is] the skill that you’re improving when you decide that you want to learn how to juggle,” Wall said.
“It really is about cultivating a relationship between a person and an object. And that’s what it is just from the get-go.”
