Matt Hall began his juggling career at the tender age of 27, after he purchased Charlie Dancey’s Encyclopaedia of Ball Juggling and vowed to learn every trick in the book.
Known as the “Juggle Sensei”, he has garnered several awards, including the International Jugglers’ Association Individuals Silver medal, the IJA Peoples’ Choice Award, and the 2005 IJA Individual Prop Champion. He has performed, taught workshops, and emceed in places like Scotland, England, Australia, Israel, Canada, The Netherlands, and Denmark. In 2008, he performed on the Open Stage and again hosted the final Open Stage show at the European Juggling Convention in Karlsruhe, Germany-the largest gathering of jugglers in history at the time. Matt has performed and emceed at the 2009 Montreal Juggling Festival, the 2009 Melbourne Juggling Convention, the 2011 Turbo Juggling Festival I Quebec, the 2011 British Juggling Convention (an extremely rare third invitation), the 18th Israeli Juggling Convention (an unprecedented second invitation), the Barullo Circus & Juggling Festival in Guadalajara, Mexico, the 2012 Auckland Circus Convention, and the 2015 Newcastle Juggling Festival in Australia.
Additionally, Matt has served as a consultant to The Passing Zone in designing a new cigar box routine, gone on tour with Cirque du Soleil’s Quidam show as a paid instructor, and was awarded the 2011 IJA Bobby May Award.
