GREENVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) - At Baldwin Heights Elementary School in Greenville, students learn the usual subjects -- and they have the chance to learn juggling, too, in an after-school club for third- through sixth-graders.
In the school gym during a typical session, dozens of students spread out to try to toss three balls in the air and catch them. Baldwin Heights instructor Lori Hostitler tells the students about proper technique. Students are clumped together with other students who have already mastered beginner-level juggling.
Hostitler calls it the Z Club.
To join, students need to juggle the ball for each letter of the alphabet. In other words, they need to toss the balls in the air 26 times. If they can do that without dropping them, then they are part of Z Club for life.
