This is an exquisite act of amazing balance, extraordinary flexibility, and skilled choreography.
The act uses four tall and specially designed handstand canes. Sally balances on these tall handstand poles with spectacular ease and grace, performing many of her signature handstands and contorted positions. She also uses the floor space surrounding the canes to perform beautiful acrobatic movements.
The act culminates with Sally squeezing all 5’6″ of herself into a tiny perspex box.
Act Length: 5 1/2 minutes

Sally contorts and bends her body in half to form amazing shapes and positions. This is contortion and handstand balance moving from one spectacularly held position to another, performed on a platform or podium.
It is also possible for Sally to include her contortion box into her sets, she somehow squeezes all 5’6″ of her into the tiny box!
She also offers walkabout acrobatics/handstand balance, where she moves around the venue and the guests performing a splendid array of backflipping acrobatics and handstand contortion.
