  In the shower pattern, one hand does all the throwing, and the other hand does all the catching. The throwing hand throws objects across to the catching hand, and the catching hand passes the objects back over to the throwing hand.

A shower can be represented in siteswap notation by either an odd number followed by 1 (e.g. 51, 71, 91), or an even number with an "x" followed by a 2x in synchronous notation (e.g. (4x,2x), (6x,2x), (8x,2x)). Either way, the two numbers in the siteswap should add up to twice the number of objects in the pattern.

HikoEdit

Women in the Kingdom of Tonga juggle tui tui nuts in the shower pattern as part of a traditional activity called Hiko. Some Tongan jugglers are reported to have showered up to 10 objects.

Siteswap exercisesEdit

You can use these exercises to practice the same kinds of throws that are done in shower patterns, before you learn the full pattern.

Some of the siteswaps listed below are shortened to leave out parts where you’re not doing anything. Click on them to see animations of the exercises.

You should practice doing these starting with your right hand and with your left hand, so that you will be able to do the pattern on either side.
