Bounce Juggling With Audrey Greaves [Not Magic But...]

Posted by Michael on January 13th, 2020

Despite efforts EVERY June around World Juggling Day (which, by the way, will be June 20 this year) I still can’t juggle. I don’t get it… something is broke inside me. I can do other complex two handed tasks (from coin magic to stick fighting) but juggling eludes me.

So I will just leave the juggling to Audrey Greaves. I found this on her YouTube page, but have not been able to find out much else about her other than the email and Instagram at the end of her promo.

Y’all go out and have a fun, but safe, weekend!
