You can also toss the 2 balls so they follow each other around in a circular motion. Pop the first ball up so that it comes down a little to the left of your hand. As the first ball starts to fall, toss the second ball so that it follows exactly the same path to come down a little to the left of you hand. Catch the first ball, move your hand a bit to the right (to complete the bottom of the arc) and toss again. The balls will follow each other counter-clockwise around the elliptical path. You can also do the same pattern in a clock-wise direction by tossing the balls just to the right. Practice this with each hand until they are equally strong and you can maintain the pattern without drifting.
Once you have the basic patterns, practice different heights, or slowing moving the columns apart and back together or switching from columns to circular and back again. Wave to people or eat a sandwich with your free hand.
