Balance on a Bowling Ball

posted Saturday, March 24, 2012 - 5:49pm

This video teaches you how to balance on a bowling ball. There is the potential for hurting yourself, so please be careful and use a chair for stability.  You can do this same balance on a basketball, but you need to play a bit with the inflation.  Also, do it on thick carpet.  The way my living room is set up, I can't really get a full head to toe shot while still being on the "good" carpet.  I am on carpet, but it's not really the right kind of carpet.  Along those lines, it's really easy to get caught up in the gear . . . finding the right ball, the right carpet, the right shoes.  Eventually, these things should not matter.  Performaners need to adapt to any variables . . . except mud . . . if someone asks you to perfom this stunt in mud . . . just say "no".

"David Harris . . . knows a thing or two about dancing, gracefully and cleverly, with oddball props such as paint buckets and pieces of paper."
Star Tribune
"Dynamically delightful David Harris performs dazzling and goofy Yo-Yo tricks as he relates his teenage experience."
