You need 10 people
(3 fliers and 7 bases).
Let’s start with
the table base part of the pyramid. You need a front base, a back
base, and a flier. Back base bend down and grab both of the flier’s
ankles. Front base start with your right knee down, your arms up in a
dagger motion, and grab a thumb to thumb grip with the flier. Flier
stand with your feet together and grab for the front base in front of
you. On count, flier dip off of the ground, push with your arms
straight down through the base in front of you, stiffen your legs
right after the jump, and lift with your hips to the ceiling. Back
base… as flier jumps, just lift the flier’s ankles and place her feet
on your shoulder. Now brace by pulling straight down on her calves for
support. Front base… dip with your legs and push straight up with your
arms resisting the flier’s weight at all times. Keep your arms locked
for the rest of the pyramid.
Now get 2 of these
table stunts next to one another. Both back bases should be shoulder
to shoulder. Both front bases should be elbow to elbow, and both
fliers shoulder have their bottoms and shoulders together to create
the pyramids main level.
Now for the top
flier. Start in an elevator as explained on page 4. Flier places
your hands on the bottom flier’s outside waists. Determine if the
bottom flyers are of equal height. If not then tell them to adjust.
When they are of equal height, then push the 2 together so that there
are NO holes in the middle. Now adjust your hands to the mid- backs
of the flier’s in front of you. On count have the bases extend the
elevator while the top flier maintains contact for the finish.
NOTE: You can add
a couple of hitches to the sides of this pyramid to make it more
difficult. Another thing that could be done is adding in shoulder
sits on the front bases. Now the bottom fliers will have to grab the
shoulders of the shoulders sits.
