I've been teaching Juggling for 10 years. I have juggled 9 balls, 6 clubs and 7 rings. I have spent hundreds of hours practicing and have a vast stock of tricks. I can teach anyone how to 3 balls juggle within 15 minutes. After that, I can teach any tricks within a month or so of practice, depending on the amount of practice one is willing to do outside of meetings. If the student leaves the path of training up to me, then the first big trick will be Mill's Mess. The progression from there will be to learn site swap notation and and 4 balls. After that, I can will start diversifying the lessons with learning club and ring juggling. After a few months, the student will be able to pass 6, 7, and 8 clubs with another individual, juggling 5 balls, 5 rings, and 4 clubs as well as several tricks for each. I can't wait to start teaching tossing objects around with you!

Donna is truly one of a kind person! I am so lucky to trust my instincts about Donna. She is absolutely an amazing person! I like to become a permanent student as I have been interested in many subjects Donna masters. Also, I must say that Donna is a gentle tutor and being. She is a true precious gem.
Dan
Wow! This lady was oozing knowledge galore! Not only she knows what she claims, but she quickly sees other marketing aspects of the cyberworld and shortcomings of the website! She is extremely talented lady who cares about what she does. She is worldly and helpful with invaluable suggestions to improve SEO qualities of the site!

Initially, I have committed to only one session. I have purchased 3 more sessions. Donna ROCKS!!!

I've gotten so much out of his teaching and so have many of my friends. If you have an audition or play coming up, he's the one to get you ready for it!
