[Amazon.com_ Sphereplay_ Art of the Sphere with Michael Glenn (Contact Juggling).jpg]

On this DVD 40 differtent moves by Michael Glenn. In about 30 minutes he shows his technics and moves, which some not often are seen on Youtube. With a short explanation, slow motion and close ups he gives you a good view how moves are build up.

Michael uses only 1 ball, so no multiball technics. The DVD isn't mend for real beginners. The moves shown in this DVD are for the ones who already have some basic CJ experience.

There are some extras on the DVD. In the bonus section you can see that even the most skilled persons fail sometime... Even Michael Glenn sometimes has slippery hands! You can als see some other Contact Jugglers with different styles.

Contact - Tyas Frantz

[CONTACT Starring Tyas Frantz.jpg]

Als ik een DVD van zo'n 25 euro koop mag ik verwachten hierop de dingen te vinden waarmee hij wordt aangeprezen. Helaas blijkt deze DVD niet aan de verwachtingen te voldoen. De Contact Juggler Tyas Frantz presenteert op gebrekkige wijze in sneltreinvaart een aantal moves met 1, 2 en 3 ballen. Er worden wel enkle basis moves getoond, maar dit is echt minimaal. Ondanks dat de acryl ballen tegen een stootje kunnen is het ook vreemd dat de opnames plaatsvinden op een parkeerplaats. In één van de bonusfilmpjes zijn de uitlatingen van Tyas over Contact Juggling ook niet om over naar huis te schrijven... De gehele DVD lijkt dan ook meer als een snelly "money maker" gemaakt te zijn. Mijn advies is dan ook om een andere DVD te kopen voor dit geld!
