Balls, clubs and rings have been flying through the air in Sioux Falls as jugglers from around the globe compete this week in the World Juggling Federation International Championships.
The event has brought together some of the best jugglers in the world to compete in events that test their endurance, agility and dexterity.
This is the first year the World Juggling Federation has held its annual international convention and championship in South Dakota.
Twelve-year-old Hannah Baran traveled to Sioux Falls from the Canadian city of Winnipeg so she could meet other jugglers like herself.
Baran taught herself to juggle by watching videos on YouTube. She practices her skills about an hour each day and says her favorite prop is the club.
