  • stilts?

    I have done what is called an "elevator feed" with Dave Ward (of the net) and
    Robert Bowes, a local juggler. In an elevator feed, one person stands on
    another's shoulders, precariously balanced, and another person facing them feeds
    both in an up-down-up-down fashion. It's somewhat harder to feed than might be
    expected, as the distance and strength of the throws are significantly
    different. I don't really know how it looked from a longer perspective, but from
    my vantage as the feeder, it looked pretty neat.

    Another variation on this, I think done by Dave and Robert, and also done by
    Scott Burton & Brian Wendling (aka "Bob the Incredible Juggler") at the IJA
    nationals some years back (Akron?) involved a simple two count, done between two
    people, one standing on the other's shoulders. That too is harder than one might
    think -- getting the down throw right seems to be harder than one might expect.
