A dream and a breakthrough. 

It's like a dream, having 600 students learning what I've had so much fun developing. To teach and share this stuff is super satisfying and I can't see an end in sight, which makes me happier still.

I'm so glad the 75's have arrived just in the nick of time. I say the nick of time because in 6 weeks, I pack up my home and family here in Mullumbimby, Australia and we head to Seattle, USA for 5 months work. Teatro Zinzanni is the company and I'll be…

    [quote=Steve Mills] Hi i am Steve Mills of mills mess fame . Juzzey really blew my mind with his incredible talent and informed me of chucka chucks! I had not seen them not are they hugely popular in the juggling scene! What an amazing creation. Congratulations [/quote] Hey Steve!! Wow, great to hear from you. Chuka Chuks are still a very new idea and they are not hugely popular on the juggling scene but slowly I am working toward getting them out there. Juzzie is brilliant isn't he! He is a musician first and was a juggler second but I started teaching him Chuka Chuks maybe.. 4 years ago and he has taken to it like it's meant to be. He's such a great guy and so much fun to jam with. Thanks again for reaching out!
