ambulant diagram

Mr Inside, Mr Outside

This is a pattern for five jugglers A, B, C, D and E. A and B feed on a four count and C, D and E walk around in a figure of eight pattern passing six count. C, D and E always pass with B (Mr Inside) when they are coming forward through the middle of the figure of eight, or with A (Mr Outside) going backwards on the edge of the figure of eight.

A and C start self self. E starts self self self self. B's first pass is with D as shown below:

C, D and E then move in the direction of the red arrows. Now A passes with C:

C, D and E continue in their figure of eight pattern. Now B passes with E:

A's next pass is with D:

B's next pass is with C:

This diagram is just like the first one, except all the jugglers have moved around one place.

To do a righty - lefty version of this pattern, Mr Inside passes on three count, three count, four count and Mr Outside starts with a self then passes on four count, three count, three count. The feedees pass on five count.

Here are some alternative arrangements for this pattern:
A and B could stand side by side:

A and B can stand either side of the figure eight. In this case C, D and E pass from the points marked by the green squares:

You could try a five person benzene ring arrangement:

Or a catherine wheel arrangement:

I'm sure there are many other possibilities.
