You might think that learning to juggle is something that some people do to pass the time away, or even to waste time, but it is actually of great benefit to people in many different ways.
Juggling certainly is a great way of taking a break and enables you to return to more intensive mental activity feeling refreshed. On the other hand, though, there are cognitive and educational benefits to learning juggling skills and at The Safe House we use juggling to develop our understanding of patterns and procedures and to devise strategies which help our learning in other areas.
At the same time, research has shown that juggling can help people with dyslexia, attention deficit disorders, hyperactivity and even Alzheimer’s disease because it is an activity which challenges the brain and keeps it active and ready to deal with the complex tasks of everyday life, including learning.
Juggling facilitates the development of problem-solving skills and can help to develop qualities such as patience and perseverance. At the same time, as a person develops the skill, it can stimulate imagination and creativity, qualities that are vital in the modern world.
The Safe House Three Ball Juggling Club Sessions begin with learning how to juggle. This can be a short or long part of the sessions as different people learn at different rates. However, once you know ‘the trick’, it is usually a matter of individual patience and motivation.
For this reason, The Three Ball Juggling Club Sessions are an ideal medium through which to assess your own motivation and, through this assessment, to develop ways of getting stuff done even when you maybe don’t feel like it.
These sessions focus on the skill of three ball juggling, but also incorporate a range of other areas of learning depending on the needs of the participant(s).
