(Utrecht - Netherlands)
« on: December 31, 2006, 01:36:52 pm »
Hello, I've been playing diabolo serious for about half a year now, know almost all suicides(infinite <3)geno/m-geno.
Most 1 D stuff summed up...,
2d sprinkler/suicide/leg orbits(and almost arm orbits)..I practice 2 hours per day minimum :o

But I really want to take it to the next level, so I'm looking for anyone near Utrecht who is willing to teach me  ;D

Anyone who is up for it?

Niek.

Hello Niek,

I don`t think teacher is the right word. I would say you need a source of inspiration for your diaboling.

In the Netherlands is a rather good diabolo community wich can be found at: http://www.ekoster.nl/diastylo.nl/smf/

Also, since you live in Utrecht, there is a free practice night a the local kidscircus called "Circus Jopie". There will be at least 1 diabolist regularly, Ceri-Anne. She is also on this forum. Here is the link to the website of circus jopie: http://www.circusjopie.nl/index.html

For tricks you can also check out the Dutch website made bij Martijn: http://www.circuspla.net/ Check out the diabolo section ;)

Also you can visit meetings and juggling convention in and around the Netherlands. Info on these can be found at circusplanet, or http://www.jugglingdb.com/
All you have to do is visit their calender.

Maybe the message board of http://jongleren.startpagina.nl/ is a good place to meet people, but I think your changes are better on the Dutch forum.

Also, if you are searching for practice spaces, in Rotterdam at Rotjeknor there is a practice eve wich I visit often. Maybe check that out. http://www.circusrotjeknor.nl/

One last thing, you want to take your diaboling to the next level right? I wonder what your next level is going to be.

Have fun playing, maybe see you around.

Btw: Next time, do your research yourself.

Hi Niek!
Arjan is right, I practice at Circus Jopie in Utrecht. It's on thursday evenings from 20.00 till 22.00, the address can be found at the website Arjan gave you.
It's always nice to meet other jugglers, so I hope to see you there some time.

Hello Arjan and Ceri-Anne

True, teacher isn't the right word, however I am looking for some1 to teach me new diabolo tricks, since I'm really at that point .. hmm what now?
Its a shame there are so few diaboloist, and even fewer people who know how to explain it.. Because even though I do loads of research myself(everything I learned so far) some things I cannot get with flash movies or diabolotricks.com


I'm really not into the circus scene but some place to diabolo with others where it doesnt rain would be nice I guess. Is Circus Jopie some sort of gym?


One last thing, you want to take your diaboling to the next level right? I wonder what your next level is going to be.

I just want to keep improving, and not get stuck at a certain skill level (just like everyone else I suppose).
