My First Contact Juggling Prop was an Orange

I first saw Contact Juggling at the Pennsic War XVI.
James Ernest was Contact Juggling a clear crystal over concrete.
It was as impressive then as it is now to see someone skilled rolling spinning even throwing a crystal over concrete. .

After Seeing that lesson the first thing I did was run back to camp and find the first round thing I could and then I started to practice with it. My first contact juggling prop was an orange.

I usually start poeple out in a different way than I was taught.
I even teach it different in person. Please come to my workshop and help me create new tricks like 'The Betsy". Also help me learn new ways to learn.
That doesn't mean I don't appreciate the way I was taught. You need to start somewhere.
