Gare du Zap is the 6-handed siteswap a8999 (global), where you locally throw “pass self zap self self”. The pass (3.3 P) should be in the air a little bit longer than a self, the zap is just a little bit faster that a self (2.7 P).
A Zap is fast, half spun pass (5 in 4-handed siteswap, 2.5 in Prechac notation). Zaps add 1 more level of height to your passes. Plus, they are fun!
Why Not Zaps?! (85566)
Another “little” 4-handed siteswap passing with Zaps. Great for warming up, super nice outdoors pattern, even with windy conditions.
We survived the first year of the pandemic, we are healthy, we are allowed to have a super tiny little juggling convention and we can still pass.
Zaps in 4-handed Siteswaps
The workshop is meant for beginners at 4-handed Siteswaps or Zaps (or both). The six patterns of the workshop use 4-6 clubs and also contain single passes, zips and a few Flips (4).

The zap is magic. The pattern is tough. It has passes at 3 different heigths, so the timing has to be really good!

This pattern was a part of the “Improving your zaps” workshop by Brook & Nicki. It is quite easy but more fun than 5 zaps 1-count…
The zap is magic. Unfortunately we took only super beautiful red clubs to the beach, though.
