Roy Pomerantz became hooked to the sport of juggling from the young age of fourteen, and hasn’t looked back since. A skilled and passionate juggler who relied on the sport to make it through college, Pomerantz continues to delight audiences with an amazing stage variety act to this day.
His enthusiasm for juggling was sparked almost immediately at the moment he picked up Carlo’s Book of Juggling, which led Roy Pomerantz to begin juggling nearly anything in sight, including beer cans, oranges, socks and even cigar boxes. He would soon develop a practice routine that covered over 3 hours a day, building an obsession that would start at the basics, such as “the cascade”, and would quickly move into such maneuvers as “the shower”, and “three in one hand”. Pomerantz would soon develop combinations, tempos and a varied choreography all his own, one that be a genuine expression of his creativity, and which would garner him the attention and admiration of many in the juggling community.
Roy Pomerantz carefully and tenaciously developed his juggling skills as a youth, and enjoyed the opportunity to display those skills in front of the world-famous Michael Moschen, one of the most famous professional jugglers in the field of entertainment. It was because of this one-on-one performance that Moschen invited Pomerantz to study with him at the New York School of Circus Arts. It was then recommended to Pomerantz to apply to Clown College, which, though he was accepted to the prestigious entertainment institution, he turned down in favor of continuing his academic career at Columbia University in the City of New York.
