Don't try this at home

One of my classes was discussing the difficulties of the 'rolling a coin up your abs' trick, when my teacher memorably sniffed, 'I don't go in for circus tricks, myself'.
I guess in her book the subject of today's post would qualify as stunt work rather than dancing, but you can't deny that everyone loves a good balancing act:

I think this photo is of Melina from Daughters of Rhea performing her sword and dagger dance - with zagat, no less!* I tried balancing a cane on my chin for five minutes to see what this does to the neck. The result was nothing pleasurable, let me tell you.

This really is Melina:

The picture quality is terrible, but you get the gist.

PS: Apparently that's her mother who comes on at the end looking concerned. Sweet.

*Edit: OK, it must be. Her website claims she is the only person in the world who does this, and I believe it.
