HopStop: Jason Tardy, juggler (FREE)

November 18, 2017 @ 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM at CSB Community Center: City of Claremont

You will be on the edge of your seat (or the HopStop rug) when Jason takes the stage in this wild ride of juggling and comedy. Accompanied by upbeat recorded music, Jason will juggle and manipulate anything and everything: toilet plungers, yoga balls, ladders, even himself. Amazing stunts done with no fear and a lot of practice will have jaws on the floor. Jason may need an assist from audience members during the performance.
