Vova Galchenko, at 9 years old, juggling 5 balls

I was probably around 9 years old when I first learned the basic juggling pattern with plastic grocery bags. I left juggling alone until I saw a documentary about jugglers when I was 14 years old. That’s when I finally learned how to juggle 3 balls, the basic three-ball cascade.

Now, I’m 24 years old. I’ve been trying on and off for the past several years to learn to juggle 5 balls.

So, here’s a question I’ve been thinking about: What’s a good age to start juggling?

I really don’t know. I taught some friends in college how to juggle. They picked it up quickly.

But how young can you go?

Embedded below is video of a young Vova Galchenko, the juggling master, at 9 years old, juggling three, four and five balls. (I think Olga Galchenko makes a cameo.) So, if you want to learn how to juggle 3 balls and you’re wondering, ‘Am I too young?’ this is my answer.
