Andrés-One of the reasons that I love about being a juggler is that as time moves on, I have come to realize the differences between my body and the equilibrium I try to find in perfecting my technique as a contact juggler. Contact juggling is an art on to itself that awakens almost all one's senses and allows one to highten one's reflexes. Contac juggling has allowed me to discover a new kind of enjoyment in life and it has allowed me to branch out and meet others who are as much in love with juggling as I am.

Andrew Olson-Why do I love juggling? Because it combines so many wonderful things: art, mathematics, motion, perception, invention, risk, and entertainment. Discovering new patterns is my passion. The complexity of my creativity, however, is bounded by what my mind can visualize, and also, by what my body can physically do. As I continue to improve, I'm able to comprehend and eventually perform increasingly challenging maneuvers, ultimately incorporating these ideas into cohesive sequences and patterns.

Thomas Barrett-I love everything about juggling. It gets me outside and off the couch. Practicing juggling makes the impossible seem possible. Through juggling, I have learned that any complicated thing can be broken down into manageable parts. The only limit to what I can do is how lofty I dream and how much time and dedication that I am willing to put into it. Juggling is my passion. I have been juggling since the 2nd grade and I will be doing this for the rest of my life. I think about it, I breathe it, and I dedicate all my free time to it.I hope I can make it to IJA this year and experience its greatness for the first time!

Kyle Lee-From the day I first touched a diabolo, I never stopped practicing. I can honestly say that the moment I first made contact with it, I knew this was my passion. I love performing and putting smiles on the faces of my audience, and I also love spending hours alone at the park working on the same trick over and over. There's nothing that compares to the feeling of controlling such a fast spinning object with two other sticks attached by a string flying through the air.

Well to start, I love practicing, learning new technique, performing, and making people smile. Juggling is poetry in motion and is visually interesting. Juggling is a universal language much like music, and brings people together to create something beautiful. There is an infinite amount of possibilities and we will never stop creating.

Elliot Eli Pearsall- I've been juggling/ spinning for 4 1/2 years and love it with all my heart. Through juggling/ spinning I've met countless life long friends, and had the opportunity to share my passion with thousands of people around the country. Most importantly, through juggling/ spinning I not only forget my worries and release my inner child, it is also a beautiful meditation that has taught me so much about life, and myself that I will carry with me forever.

Nick Thomas-I've been juggling for a little more than 5 years, and my favorite part is the community and all of the friends I have made. Jugglers are like no other people in the way that they're all so witty, helpful, and just fun people to be around. Combat is also incredibly fun, adding a more physical, competitive aspect that some of the younger people can get involved in and get into.

Emily Skorupski-"Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle." -Napoleon Hill.I was introduced to juggling at last years IJA, recruited from my clerk position at the front desk of BGSU"s Field House. I love juggling for it's feeling of reward after FINALLY getting a trick right. I've learned so much about my own patience and persistence and ability to learn through juggling. It has provided me a new outlet for creativity and energy and has introduced me to so many different people. The mutual love for juggling is responsible for many incredible friendships. I can't get enough of juggling now.Hope to see everyone again this Summer!
