What are Hand Balancing and Acro-Balance?

Hand balancing, sometimes called a “statue act”, is a jaw-dropping exhibition of strength and equilibrium. These artists execute flawless one-armed handstands, counter-balances, and gravity-defying moves. The perfect finale for any show or event – this is one of the most popular acts!

Acro-Balance, or Adagio, is an exquisite blend of strength, balance, and grace. These artists, usually a male/female  or female/female team, perform a stunning series of balances, contortions, and acrobatics. Perfect for walk-around performance.
