yes . You wouldn't belive how many body rolls and other tricks there are with one ball. In fact, one professional juggler who had mastered ten balls stopped doing it, going down in the number of balls, eventually getting to one, because he was tired that there wasn't anything more to do with so many balls. The less balls, the more possibilities.
violin, bow, and hat. An interesting thing to do is come out in a suit (with a hat of course) and start playing a song on the violin. Halfway into the song,(don't try this at home) throw the violin in the air, take your hat off, and start juggling the three. When done with that, put your hat back on and finish playing the song.
Devilsticks. Devilsticks really look good with torches on both ends, and if you do them in the middle of the night when it's pitch black.
club swinging . This is probably how juggling clubs first started. In the 1800's gymnists would stretch out by swinging around 6 pound wooden clubs. During their breaks, someone probably started flipping them from one hand to the other, and eventually juggling clubs came out of it. (juggling 8 pound clubs!)
