Welcome to is an open forum for the contact juggling community. It contains articles and videos from some of the most well known contact jugglers in the world. Users may edit, participate, and contribute to just about every page on the site, and all comments are welcome. The site has been archiving the community development since 1999.

Contact Juggling (also known as Dynamic Manipulation, Sphereplay, Orb Rolling, Spherical balancing etc) is a relatively new form of juggling where balls are rolled over the hands and body instead of tossing them in the air. The fundamental ideas of contact juggling were formulated in the early 1980s by physical artist Michael Moschen, although different forms of CJ (as we call it) have been around for quite some time.
