I posted these on Facebook, but I forgot to post these here. If you missed them the first time here they are again.
Here are the videos from June. Darren finished his on time. Even though he was much more successful at bouncing five than he was at his balancing trick, I still think I enjoyed last month's video more. July has been super busy with shows and things, so I didn't get around to editing my video till now. My act didn't turn out as cool as I was imagining when I thought it up, but here it is. Maybe this concept could be improved in the future.
Well, here they are, the Tricks of the month for ... May. Both videos took a long time to shoot, and a long time to edit, but I do like the way they turned out. My Harder Better thing will need a lot of tweeking, but I am glad that it is at least more than an idea now. I think Darren's video might be my favorite one so far. Make sure you guess how many tries it will take him before you watch it.
What does dancing during a rain shower have to do with juggling? Well, Darren worked on his dance moves by practicing the gliding factory. I learned to do a five ball half shower. I did it by itself and transitioning to and from different tricks. I also finally completed last month's trick successfully (not on film though.) We have super ambitious plans for next months tricks, can't wait to show them to you.
Once again I am a little late with these. I really like how we haven’t repeated a prop yet. Darren decided to mix it up with a snowboard trick this month. I was trying to learn a three club trick. I ran into a lot of problems, but on the bright side I figured out how to make a video without the black boarder. Next month, I am going to work on a five ball half shower. Hopefully this will be easy enough for me to take some time to work on my old tricks. I haven’t worked on two diabolos since January. I think I may take page out of my instagraming friends and start throwback Thursdays where I will only work on old tricks.
I know it’s March 4th, but I am getting closer to posting in the correct month. Anyway this month(or maybe it’s last month), you are getting a bonus video. That’s right Darren is joining in with his own Trick of the Month, so from now on you can expect two videos each month. Who knows maybe Darren will even start his own blog thing. I wonder what it would be called. I hope it would have a D in the name, maybe “D - Tales”
Back to the tricks, this month was much more successful than last month. I was able to make a lot of progress with my trick. I came up with the trick last summer, but never was able to get more than 5 catches. I figured out how to continue the trick, and I can consistently get at least 10 catches. Of course, Darren nailed his trick as well.
My first Trick of the Month was two diabolos. I didn't master it, but I definitely figured some things out. Sorry it took so long to post this. Hopefully from now on we will able to post these in the first week of each month. My goal for next month will be to juggle three balls while doing a three beat weave with poi. If you have any ideas for future tricks I should try or suggestions for improving the videos, let me know. If you want to learn any diabolo tricks diabolotricks.com is a nice site.
