Posted:Is it like regular juggling, where you toss several balls in the air, or is it more like what I saw a guy doing out in front of the local library one time?

This young man had one ball, and was rolling it around his hands, arms, and upper body in such a manner that it looked as if he had telekinesis or something..it was amazing to watch. Was this sphereplay or "CJ" I was watching?
If so, are there any web tutorials on it?

Posted:Contact Juggling = CJ = Sphereplay = Dynamic Manipulation (although this covers things other than balls)

"Contact" juggling as the balls always in contact with your body. Except it doesn't have to be smile

Seriously. How many aspiring crane operators do you know who want to play with fire?
