Juggling, art of keeping several objects in motion in the air simultaneously and catching them. Juggling was practiced by the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans; the French equivalent was a medieval troubadour who juggled, sang, and danced. Juggling came into its own in circuses and music halls in the 19th century. The word juggling has also come to mean dishonest manipulation, especially of money.
