Balance mind, body and Juggling Sticks!
October Saturdays 1:30 - 3:30 at the Temescal Arts Center
Learn Devil Stick juggling and complementary baton and double baton skills from a performer with over a decade of experience.
Devil Sticks, also known as the Devil's Triangle, Flower sticks, Trick Sticks, etc. are an old form of juggling that uses two hand sticks to control, manipulate, toss and spin a center baton with flowered tassels or end weights. Some sets are simpler, with an hourglass-shaped center stick, while some center sticks are tipped with LED lights or even torches!
Devil Stick juggling is a good cross discipline for dancers, martial artists, and staff and poi spinners. Devil Sticking offers something for everyone; it helps improve dexterity, and provides great exercise and great entertainment for you and those you perform for. Get attention and dazzle your family and friends!
Classes are suitable for all skill levels, though basics will be emphasized. Register in advance or drop in. Fee is $20 per class, or $80 if you sign up for the month (all five classes including Halloween) on October 3rd. Students may bring their own juggling sticks, purchase a hand made set of Devil Sticks through the instructor, or use a set of Devil Sticks provided for class sessions. Each class includes a demonstration of advanced stick juggling and other performance techniques and props. Supplies and class size are both limited, so we recommend that you e-mail the instructor before the class session(s) you wish to attend.
