Spiral

This move looks fantastic when accompanied by a lot of body movement. In the video “Contact Juggling: Part One”, Greg does several variations on it – pirouetting, both arms at once, and straightforward.

Start with a ball at the Elbow Hold. From there, slightly toss it forward and up to give it a bit of momentum.

The ball rolls up the forearm, but as it rolls, you should turn the arm under it so as it is coming up to about 2/3rds of the arm, it is then rolling on the backarm.

As the ball approaches the hand, you spiral the arm around it so the ball curves around the heel of the hand and into it’s palm.

Allow the ball to continue up the hand and into the Tripod or Three Finger Hold.
