Matt Hall began his juggling habit at the tender age of 27, after he purchased Charlie Dancey's Encyclopaedia of Ball Juggling and vowed to learn every trick in the book.

Known as the “Juggle Sensei”, he has garnered several awards, including the International Jugglers’ Association Individuals silver medal, the IJA Peoples’ Choice Award, IJA Individual Prop Champion, and IJA Bobby May Award. He has performed, taught workshops, and emceed all over the U.S., as well as in Scotland, England, Australia, Israel, Canada, The Netherlands, Mexico, Germany, New Zealand and Denmark. Matt went on tour with Cirque du Soleil’s Quidam show as a paid instructor. He headlined the 2015 Newcastle Juggling Festival in Australia and paid a second and third visit in 2017 & 2018 to the Seattle Moisture Festival as a performer and emcee. Most recently, Matt has been invited to host the IJA 2019 Cascade of Stars and to emcee and teach workshops at the upcoming EJC 2019 in Britain.
