I get asked this question all the time: “How long does it take to learn to juggle?”
It varies from person to person, but I know you want a definitive answer, right? After having taught thousands of people to juggle, my answer is:
With the right teacher, you can learn to juggle in 30 minutes or less.
Now this doesn’t mean you’ll be a pro after that time, but it’s possible to have the basic pattern down (called the 3-Ball Cascade) after 30 minutes of coaching and practice. And this applies to teenagers on up.
Then, just practice 20-30 minutes every day for a week or two, and you’ll be pretty good!
Here are some things you can do to learn more quickly:
- Learn first with juggling scarves to understand the pattern in “slow-motion.”
- Set a goal before practicing. It can be something like “Throw 5 times without dropping.”
- Track your progress. Use the JuggleFit iPhone app or PDF log.
