Yes, it is a bit sloppy... A year ago he couldn't do 2 diabolo's...
He's improving a lot and I just wanted to share it with you.
Maybe it's good to give him tips. Then he can try to make it cleaner.

Allright here's a new video from Pieter.
It contains 3 and 4 diabolo high siteswaps.
I think he's 15-16 year... Very impressive, an upcoming talent.

You can see it here: 3 and 4 diabolos video

I've meet his mother, who walked into the circusshop and was asking after 4 diabolo's... It was stunning,... The mother thought it was just a stupid hobby and everyone can do this. She complained only concerning diabolo's on the roof. She just wouldn't believe that her son is one of 'the best' (it's how you wan't to decide what's the best) diabolist in the world. Or certain in Belgium.

Pieter has mad skills, far better than I am atm. I think he's still young too??

He's fourteen I think.

Maybe you have to hold your hand in a different angle. Or the problem could be that you havent enough speed.

Gear / Re: Which String for Fire-Diabolo?
« on: November 26, 2007, 07:45:54 PM »
Hey, and by the Way: i found out, how to hold 2D in Vertax (only for a short time, but it works!!)

Here we go (Righties): Put ur 2nd Diab. between ur legs; Go into Vertax; Make a left Stopover; Put both Handsticks into ur left Hand and turn around with the Diabolo; By turning around - grab the 2nd Diab (with ur right Hand!) and wrap it from the top into the string to the right Side of the first one (it´s like a Frontwrap playin´ normal 2D). Then accelerate it with ur Hand (very important!!!), keep turnin to the right and keep accelerating the wrapped Diab as usual.

Check it out.  ;)

I'm doing this for about 2 years... So I dont think its new.

I'm sorry that I'm opening a new topic for this but I wanted to answer on Legaults but his was closed already.

What I wanted to say is that the tony frebourg videos of diabology are also online.

Hey, i just thought about this, but if you took a rev kit and put it into vertax, you could just place it on your palm like a stagnant top. That'd be an awesome stall, and you could whip it off your hand XD

Like this diabolist?
 

This diabolist is called Vladimir. He has done ESAC, circus high school, in Brussels.
He has beautifull act with a juggler. His diabs are modded a bit like the revolution kit, but he has a patent on it.
He can do with his kit 2 diabolo vertax, I think like trespace, he speeds one up, put it on the ground, and speed the other up, and then he does a sun and takes the first one. If this is clear...

With his kit he can also let spin his diabolos in vertax on his string, he can turn around in al the ways...
The possibilities are great!

General / Re: BENEFIT OF PLAYING DIABOLO
« on: October 27, 2007, 01:20:07 PM »
There are really much benefits of circus and diabolo. I'm making a whole essay over it in dutch. I don't have the time by now to translate it in english. But I've translated it with altavista. So the translation is really bad. I hope you, and everyone else, can do something with it.

"Why circus?
Circus has a lot of advantages on pedagogical area.
Thanks to circus techniques reach you with few resources very fast a successful experience: young people feel therefore immediately that they can reach also something with the necessary exercise. And that is certainly true it at deprived young people for twists. If you become from young to tell that you might nothing, then they jump a breach in air when they see that they are possible, however, something. As a result, they have been motivated also enormously. Children learn set up more than only a red nose.

 By the familiarisation with many circus techniques such as to juggle, twin wheel, acrobatics, trapeze, trampoline and this way further, they find certainly their gading in something. Personally and in group they undergo therefore a terrible development. Because a something else is possible as the other, they develop admiration for each other, they know where the difficulty lies.
Thus they get in the first place respect of each other and for each other. This is respect which she had deserve differently in a different way. On the street for example. And instead of hanging on the street, or in more terrible cases, have they fight now physical contact in a positive manner, they even do acrobatics with two, three or with the complete group. By this type exercises they must cooperate. For this reason circus does not belong also to sport, where competition central state.

Cooperation is necessary a distinguished final result reach. Everyone must cooperate and each other to trust. Such as you sees there be therefore numerous advantages to circus. As all the learned skills also outside the context of circus used have to the children already much are learned.
But the list of advantages go still further. During the year the children their coordination and balance are trained, and also concentration is a point which cannot forget become. If one equally which circus technique wants learn one must concentrated to work. This concentration can be transferred then to situations which are nothing to do with circus. At the end of the year, to the end action, they learn their ideas and put ideas in an effective act. Them experienced tension, comes in stress situations, and feels how it is for a group stand.
 Here too the aspect comes work respect on the other side to learn them somewhere naartoe and there also a responsibility to propose. If they do not succeed a part of the act has failed. It is most important the balance that there sits between respect which you get, and the responsibility which you must take. Already already it is during the year a nice and useful pastime, what ensures a basis of contacts, both with co-students and speculators. It is more than circus techniques only. There is started with a heap individu's, and these are gradually formed to a strong group friends."

If anyone has questions, just ask! I can translate good it but it takes me a lot of time. (and I wanna spend it in diaboling ;) )

Performing / Re: How much have you be paid for a performance?
« on: October 21, 2007, 12:10:54 PM »
It depends on the quality of your performance.
Do you've used costumes, special light/music,... Is it a act with years of training?
Or is it just a freestyle with drops,... Benefit or commercial company?
Those are al factors what makes the amount changing.
I think 50€ is a good average to start from.
