Lappen, Henry Henry the Juggler Performing Arts- Clowning,

Performing Arts- Juggling
Henry the Juggler (AKA Henry Lappen) is wanted! He is wanted by audiences everywhere for his zany attempts to defy the laws of gravity. He juggles any number of balls, clubs, rings, members of the audience . . . He balances strange items on the tip of his nose. Everything is accomplished wordlessly as Henry uses body language and gesture (and road signs!) to express himself. Caution: Henry is known to use innocent bystanders in his act. Henry the Juggler is a professional. He has been seen by tens of thousands up and down the East Coast - at theaters, schools, libraries and festivals. He has been performing for over thirty years. He studied physical comedy at California's Dell'Arte School. He is an active member of the International Jugglers' Association. A workshop follows each show, where Henry teaches some of the skills he has presented.
