While uploading a batch of videos to the contactjuggling(dot)org userprofile on youtube, i was reminded of these two video releases that Colin posted as downloads in 05/06. Since then, he moved to Berlin and became a ninja.
He’s teaching at MoM Berlin with Ed in a few weeks, so you should go learn from him, innit?

Ministry Berlin 2009 – Update

Monday, March 16th, 2009


Ok, there have been some changes to the line up for the April workshop.

Unfortunately and with great regret, I must announce that Mr. OM is no longer going to be making an appearance at our workshops in Berlin on the 6-10th April. But fear not. Taking his place on the team is once again Emanuele ‘Moon’ Marchione, who will be teaching Multiball, from small to very large numbers. Moon’s innovative style of Multiball will be a fantastic addition to our line up, and we’re all very glad to have him with us once again.

Jeanine has also confirmed some workshops in Club and Staff Contact/Manipulation from Meghan ‘MCP’ Pike, which I am quite excited about. With the success of her tutorial website, DVD and highly technical spinning ability, I feel that Meg will be quite an asset at the workshops. Be prepared for some brain melting.

one other thing, last I heard, 40 places had gone already… If you haven’t booked yet, I’d get it in quick…
