Finally, PM Juggling props are now available at Juggling & Dance studio tasse! I went to the studio in November to see and check how it was like. Let me share about that with pictures.
New PM Balls. In collaboration with Yuri (he runs this studio with his wife), we made a new model of the PM Ball. Now they are only available at the studio in Morioka, but we are selling them on PM Juggling website in the near future and also, this model will be the new flagship juggling ball for PM Juggling. (Of course, the other balls will still be available)
I have been thinking that it would be nice if I could make juggling balls that fit in daily life naturally, and let more people enjoy juggling casually. Here is the answer for now. Smaller, lighter, and matte surfaced soft PM Ball. They are suitable for everyone, including kids and women with smaller hands.
This bouncy and soft ball is very comfortable to touch and catch. I heard that someone even bought just one ball, since the person liked its texture and softness so much. Normally it’s common to get at least 3 balls when it comes to juggling, but for this ball, I feel like the episode shows it has some different role to play, which is really exciting for me.
PM Denim Beanbag Mini
Small beanbags with denim cloth, and we are calling it “Travel Beanbags”. We’ve exhibited this ball a few times in some conventions before, but since it was difficult to make many of them by hand, we only made them for special orders. However, I found the studio tasse would be the best place to sell them, so we decided to make certain amount of ready-made ones.
They are so small that you can either put them in your bag or in your pocket all the time, or you can just leave them on your desk and juggle whenever you want. Juggling always in your hand. That’s what this ball aims at.
PM Beanbag Gold/ Gold & bronze
Golden beanbag. Yuri and I were talking that the color gold surprisingly fits with most kinds of furniture, and we made these beanbags. It is filled with plastic beads and it’s water resistant, and it weighs 140g. At first the ball is completely filled and the tension is very high, but by using it for a certain amount of time, it will become much softer and nicer. If you are looking for unique and different juggling balls, this one’s for you.
Other PM Products
Other than the products introduced above, PM Russian Balls, PM Soft Russian Balls, PM Ball Pro (PM Standard are planned to be called like this after the release of new one), PM Stage Balls, PM Rings, and PM DSR are in stock. Usually rings are made-to-order, but at tasse, you can buy them on site.
When I saw the props on a beautiful shelf, it made me feel almost like being their staring at them forever. We are going to produce more props with tasse!
The tasse store is open on Fridays and Saturdays from 12-19 pm. Please check the official site for more details. Not only our products, but they have other dance & circus related things such as books too. It’s a very cozy, relaxing space with lots of fun.

Furthermore, when the store is open, their studio can be used for training purpose only for 500 yen (less than 5 USD) each. My favorite part of the studio by the way, is the floor. It is soft enough that it doesn’t hurt when you fall down, but yet it is not too soft that makes you want to move your body. I even felt like getting the same flooring in my room.
tasse is situated in Morioka, a very calm and silent city. I spent a very nice and relaxing moment there. It was not only for jugglers and dancers, but it could also be a place where people of all genres can get inspired, I think. It is only 2 hours and a half by bullet train from Tokyo. When you feel like researching deeply into your juggling, this studio could be a very good place! If you have a chance to visit, please check out our products as well!
