I hope this book will inspire and encourage club swingers and anyone thinking of taking up
swinging for the first time. This book presents a series of 20 workshop lessons on club
swinging, with reference to manipulating other objects, particularly long poles. The chapters
on performance are based on experience as part of the Cosmos Jugglers, FireNoise and from
my own solo shows.
I am grateful to many people for their help. My thanks go to: Jim Semlyen; Linda Robson,
Mark Tillotson; Rob Stone; Matt Stephens; Ken Zetie; Lara Greene; John Bolwell; Harriet
Jillings and Rachel Semlyen for their enhusiasm as well as their helpful editing and
suggestions. The illustrations are by Julie Wilson, based on my own sketches.
