Greetings all,

I've been waiting WAY too long to join this community, but my recent face to face meeting with two of my LONG time contact juggling idols spurred me into doing so.

I live in San Antonio, Texas and started contact juggling about 9 years ago, but have been wrapped up in SO many other props that you really couldn't tell. ;) I fell in love with the art after having a friend bring over a copy of In Motion, and a couple of years later met the people from Try Out Toys at a local festival and got my first sphere.

I have a "decent" multiball foundation, and since I finally bought a large stage ball last year my single work has been improving. I've been working a lot over the last year on my body rolls and stalls, but would REALLY like to start working on some more multiball.

Indeed they are! I've been working through a lot of single ball "basics" that I missed not having a stage ball for all these years(until last year when I finally bought myself a nice sized one). After my trip I really feel the need to progress into more multiball again as well. So much to learn! :D
