If you are new to juggling, you’ll want to simply start with 1 ball. You will want to practice and master the throw you will be using with 2 and 3 balls with only the 1 to begin. Throw the ball back and forth trying to keep the height of the throw the same each time. The throw should be easily caught in the other hand without having to move either hand very much at all.
After you are comfortable with your 1 ball throw, start practicing with 2 balls. Take one ball in each hand begin by throwing the first ball across to the other hand and as that ball reaches its peak, toss the second as demonstrated by the animation. The Cascade pattern with 2 balls is not fluid. It’s unbalanced without a third ball, but this is great practice for learning how to juggle with 3 balls.
The first step to learning the 3-ball cascade is taking 1 ball in your non-dominant hand and 2 balls
in your dominant hand. You will attempt to throw all three balls to the opposite hand, one at a time,
catching them all. Refer to the animation for what this should look like. Continue to practice the
3-ball flash until you can repeat it relatively easy without dropping.
The next step is to attempt 4 throws and catching without dropping.
After you have accomplished 4 complete throws, try 5, then 6 and so on. See how many throws you can get in a row without dropping.
