Completely useless for holding your cigars but an extremely useful juggling prop! Cigar boxes get their name from their similarity in shape to boxes that actually hold cigars. They’re not the most common of juggling props but they do offer a huge range of tricks and lend themselves well to many performance styles. Cigar box juggling generally has a much less fluid, more “stop and start” approach to it than conventional juggling with a lot of isolation techniques involved. They can also be incorporated into mime, magic and illusion routines.
Common cigar box juggling incorporates three boxes, they can be juggled in showers and cascades like balls but performances usually include half/quarter turns, take outs and lifts.
