MJC is HOT on the PRESS.
Jugglers throw a party
IT might be an ancient skill but juggling is experiencing somewhat of a revival thanks to modern technology. The artistic director of the four-day Melbourne Juggling Convention Christian Parr (right) said juggling aficionados are learning new tricks off internet sites such as Youtube and Facebook. ''You just keep adding to your repertoire and then you want to learn new tricks.'' The convention drew more than 300 aspiring and accomplished jugglers from the age of six to in their 60s at Collingwood College yesterday. ''They are all here in the name of fun,'' Parr said.
