Juggler's World _____________________________________________________________________________

temperature outside kept the 585 registrants at the IJAS 48th Annual
Festival inside this summer, but the sights couldn't have been better
from a juggling perspective. Local luminaries joined an international
cadre of talented performers for days and nights of the best juggling
anywhere. Champion of them all turned out to be Francoise Rochais, an
elegant French woman whose skill is "manifique!"
Gatto proved to the Vegas crowd that he's still the best technical
juggler anywhere, but the Las Vegas "home boy" spends time
these days working toward an off-stage career. Would you hire this man
to landscape your yard?
Vladik Miagkostoupov reinforced the Russian mystique by presenting a
complete package of beyond-his-years juggling skill and stage pizzazz to
win the Juniors Championship. How many other people do you know who can
play five club take-away with their dad?
Gilkey came back from nine years of IJA retirement to find out for
himself if he was on the right track in his performance career. The
rubberfaced clown he presented on stage won universal adulation, as
well as both the Founder's Award and People's Choice Award.
