Is Mills Mess a half shower from left and right? People at our juggling told me that that is all it is, but a professional juggler looked at it and told me that I had to throw some ball to the outside! Any help would be appreciated.

thanks

OK, I'm at school right now, but when I get home I'll send you a link to a site that explains it nicely. It's more complicated than that, but once you get it, it will become quite easy and smooth and natural. Best of luck

The Mills Mess is not a half shower thrown from each side, it's false shower thrown from each side. A false shower is essentially throwing all balls from one side of your body, and catching them on the other side. While doing this, your hands do cross, and you're forced to throw every other thow over the top of the pattern, from the outside.

It's complicated to explain on paper. Definitely use the resources the other posters have suggested.

There is a decent written explanation in Beyond the Cascade by George Gilson. Once you get used to the notation, it's pretty straight forward.

Good tip is to learn the following moves first:

Juggle cross armed: right over left
Juggle cross armed: left over right
Windmill to right
Windmill to left

WOW!! Thanks for all the help! I just recently began to develop a good understanding for notation! I will check out the site that Missing Link suggested! It sounds like I will get it easily because I can do the windmill from both sides and cross are one way. Thanks!
