STUNTS AND TUMBLING FOR GIRLS

A Text-book for High Schools and Colleges

Cork Screw

EQUIPMENT:  A piece of crumpled paper.

PRINCIPAL VALUE: Flexibility.

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Stand with feet about fifteen inches apart.
  2. Place the object to be picked up near the toe of the right foot.
  3. Swing the left arm across the body, around the outside of the right leg. Next reach through between the legs and pick up the piece of paper.
  4. The legs may be bent as much as is desired: but the feet must remain flat on the floor.

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  1. This stunt will be easier if the piece of paper is placed opposite the toes rather than the instep.
  2. Body rotation will be of help.
  3. During the learning process, lifting the heels will be of help.
  4. Performers with relatively short arms will find this stunt difficult.
