you have some skills man, and you didn't screw up at all. You did so many awsome tricks (to me they are awsome) flawless, so you should be proud. Really nice to see different art forms come together.

btw: those excalibur things go way beyond what I've seen so far...
some people think they are better because they can do something better

very nice fan 720 and excalibur stuff.  when your doing the 2 diabolo stuff don't do the shuffle as long, it gets boring.  don't speed up as much too.  very nice and clean for most part.  It's better than any show i've done.

Cheers
Josh

oh yeah mithew, noah got owned!

Nice skills man, i particularly like the little things like the vortex into your 2d shuffle and the uber pro way you restarted your excalibur (up there with the stationary floor start!), and the string of underwhip tricks into mini-g's  

The rest was great to. Hope to see some more of your stuff in the future so keep up the good work

Mad skills, great to watch
Consider breaking up your 2d a bit to give the audience a chance to apreciate what you are doing, a few stalls, a few looks at the audience possibly a quick burst of 2up as non jugglers seem to like that.

What happens behind the performer on stage can matter, if the people behind are into what is going on in front of them the audience often take that in. If they are bored or fiddling with things it can detract from what the audience should be looking at.

I really like the finish to your 2d section and the tricks in your vertax was great. You have to nail the final trick though even if it is not the one you hope to do.
Good luck, enjoy it, let us know how it goes.

I thought I already saw you had a new string, the wraps that you used to speed up your shuffle were very loose, so the diabolo dropped all the time in the string, if you know what I mean. But again, it was awsome anyway, it only made it harder for you I think.

damn, you are a huge guy. those diabolos are tiny next to you :P

kick ass routine--that is one that you wouldn't be ashamed to show to a crowd full of knowledgeable jugglers, and this is for a group of high school kids and parents! what a lucky bunch, eh?

another thing too, good to see you're holding it down for the California diabolo scene.

hah thanks

yeah i made up the 1D part especially with more of a juggler audience in mind but ive done the talent show every year so far

i think my 2D part could have been better but we were limited in time and they wanted us to make it shorter but we just told them flat out we weren’t going to.. heh

and maybe for my next performance thing ill be doing 3D  :D  hah i hope….
