i can't juggle so someone is likely to come along in a moment and tell me i'm talking through my arse...

but what i make of it is....

juggling is tossing the balls up into the air and catching them.

contact juggling is rolling the balls around on your body. i can't explain how it's done as i've never tried, but it looks amazing when done well. you've probably seen it done before with a glass ball....?

not sure if there are any videos on here for you to see as i'm on a work pc and can't download any of that stuff.

try doing a search for "contact juggling"

there's also contact staff, where the staff rolls along you body while still rotating.

i've never seen contact poi, though i'm sure one of the many lunatics on here has tried or will try it at some stage ubbloco

Posted:contact staff or devilsticking or juggling or whatever is primarly using your body instead of your hands to manipulate the object in question. can be mixed very effectively with the non contact versions of these same disciplines.
