Posted:I didn't get enough time to post this before, but...
I SPUN AT PROM AND IT WAS LIKE THE BEST TIME OF MY LIFE bounce2

People were like taking pictures with me and at one poit like 20 people got around me and ground me and I did ttn above us and people took pictures.

People's reaction when they saw me crack the glowsticks was ridiculous! Unfortunately a bundle of balloons ruined my moment by snagging my strings frown

I now have 2 people that want to learn that from me.

Also my friend Rob got a 7-minute video of me. I was using glowstick handles and oh my lord I LOVE this video! I was so in the moment. I can see my arms moving around in ways that look superhuman. And I learned that stationary whirling looks super awesome especially the 2petal flower version. I want to see it again! I'm getting the vid from him hopefully today bounce2 ubbrollsmile bounce2

Posted:Hey, eca, maybe you can help me with something. I automatically became a raver when I started poi, apparently, and I'm wondering if I become anything if I pick up contact juggling. Is it still a raver toy, or do I get back carnie cred?

Posted:You get back carnie cred grin As well as earn awesome points! I've only seen contact juggling at a few raves. And it's nowhere near as impressive there as it is in a beautiful location.

Contact juggling can be really frustrating, more so than poi I would say. At least when you muck up with poi you usually feel it (ie smacked in the head).

If you're looking to learn contact, I'd say forget stage balls entirely and pick up 2 acrylics. Practice with one of them and store the other away and try to forget it exists until you feel you're ready to really bust out some moves. Acrylics scratch/chip pretty easily, but they have more weight and less tack (making things like enigma isolations easier).

If you want to go with a stage ball, I'd recommend a Sil-x ball, they are stage balls filled with liquid silicone that give you a weight closer to that of an acrylic.
