Saturday Morning Show

The Saturday morning showcase is our free, fun filled, family friendly, festival showcase. That pretty much says it all. This show at the start of the day on Saturday is a great thing to bring your kids to, and an opportunity for jugglers to demonstrate their skills. Last years morning showcase rivaled the quality of some evening shows with large group passing patterns by the U of R, solo performances by Jay Gilligan and Larry Vee, and one the best top spinners in the world. You won’t want to miss it. Immediately following the one hour show is a free “learn to juggle” workshop.

Guest Artists include:

Flower City Vaudeville

Flower City Vaudeville consists of Richard Hughson, Ted Baumhauer, and Ward Hartenstein. Together they create a fanciful mix of comedy, circus skills, music, and playfulness that appeals to audiences of all ages. These guys know how to have fun, and they are not afraid to show it!

Matan Presberg

Continuing his quest for the perfect juggling pattern, Matan has spent the last year in disciplined practice.  He has posted numerous videos this year and continues to amaze the juggling community with his skill.  When he isn’t practicing, filming our expanding the Cornell Juggling club Matan likes to take a break and go to his Engineering classes.  Having started at the age of 6, his natural enthusiasm and love of juggling is infectious.

Larry Rundle

A veteran performer who is truly a Renaissance man of skills, Larry does stilts, unicycle, rolo-bolo, clubs, devilstick, diabolo, magic and more.  In previous years at the Juggle-in he has escaped from a straightjacket while unicycling and juggled while balanced on a triple stacked rolo-bolo.  He has agreed to perform once again and it’s bound to be entertaining as always.


Dominique Rabideau

Dominique Rabideau started juggling in 2002 and is still on the case. After juggling her way through a creative writing degree at York University, she picked up some manipulation hats, and has since spent countless hours throwing things at her own head. Following a decade of performance around southern Ontario, she relocated to Montreal to pursue new projects, and has most recently performed at juggling festivals in Kingston, Waterloo and Boston. When she’s not juggling, she makes macarons, goes to mathrock shows, and tries to tap-dance.

Sam Border

Sam is a 3rd year Biomedical Engineering student here at RIT. He’s been juggling since first grade and will be sharing some of his recent work with clubs this year’s Saturday morning. You won’t want to miss this!


Avery Thompson

Avery is a a graduate of RIT, and one of the main stage acts at last years Saturday evening show.
Since last years performance he has continued to practice and perform his Diabolo skills. Of course it’s easier to just watch his video below and you’ll understand. We’re thrilled that he is willing to perform for our free morning showcase, and he’ll also be teaching a diabolo workshop in the afternoon.

Scotty Nut Nut

Scott & Gabby have been performing acro-juggling and balance variety shows for kids and adults for about 2 years. It’s like a circus show without the big top tent. Gabby was a graceful ballet dancer for 16 years and now she is the Acro beast, watch out! Scott has been juggling for 27 years. Together when they perform, their energy grows with the excitement of the audience. In their free time they take care of their super cutie 15 month old kiddo Zoey, not quite old enough to join the circus…yet…
