Two-ball dribbling drills are extremely effective in improving your dribbling and ball handling. Whenever you do activities that are more difficult than you are accustomed to, the previous activity becomes easier in relation to what you are now doing. So, if you regularly practice dribbling with two basketballs, imagine how easy it would be to dribble with one.
Below is a advanced video of stationary two-ball dribbling moves that you can practice but realize this takes lots of practice and do not get discouraged when practicing. Time spent on working with 2 balls will greatly enhance your dribbling skills. I highly recommend doing these!
Below the video we have some 2 Ball Dribbling Drills and ball-handling workouts. There are many more advanced drills as shown in video we do not have posted here. But if you find yourself finding these getting easy push yourself with new ones.
All Drills shown below can also be found on our Video Page so you can see each drill being done. (to be finalized fist quarter of 2010)

2) 2-High / Low
Start by dribbling the balls waist high for 10 seconds, then suddenly let it fall low by dribbling them as low as you can, hold this for 10 seconds, then bring it back up to waist high.
Alternate the dribble like pistons in a engine.
