Club Juggling for Non-Jugglers

Cody Beastman

Description

This is a beginner club class focusing on legos and traps, two creative and innovative methods of club play. Legos are a visually striking method of manipulating clubs with a very low drop rate making them loads of fun for beginners and vets a like. A trap is when the handle of one club is pressed into another club against the forearm of the arm holding them, a basic and useful building block that we will explore in a variety of ways. No actual toss juggling experience necessary. Beg.

Bio

Cody Beastman is a talented young fire performer hailing from a town of southern soul and punk rock, Richmond, Virginia. It wasn’t long after discovering the playfully engaging meditation of object manipulation that Cody’s pyromania was born and his life took on a new path entirely. With a newfound love for body language, he began to train himself heavily in the art of contact staff; his skills have since expanded to include dragon staff, contact swords, poi, and most recently, ball and club juggling. Having grown so much from the focus of his practice, Cody is now compelled to share the gift of flow with anyone willing to learn. Cody works as Fire Safety Administrator for the Richmond, VA-based Party Liberation Front and helps organize both FLAME Festival and Fahrenheit Flow Arts.
