Title says it all. I think is an effect with much potential but I don't know any published work for this. Does anyone know?

This prop is not meant to be more then a few seconds of lively action, and comedy if you wish. It came with instructions, and you should follow them.

You can also search "Ballerina Hank magic trick", and watch the video listings given.

I know mr Hegbli, I have the instructions. I was searching for some additional moves and handlings. I think videos in youtube really don't explore the power of the effect. Thank you.

I used to perform the old "Fatima" silk knot dance first, and then after her high kick finale, continued for a few seconds using my own version of the gimmick to have her go crazy. I had to revise the little ditty to keep up with the times and the longer routine:

"Fatima liked to dance and play, For fifty cents she'd dance this way, But if a dollar you would pay, She'd go tah-rah-rah-BOOM-tee-ay. She sometimes left the ground below, As up and onward she would go; she fluttered like a butterfly, and sometimes leaped into the sky. She liked to jump from here to there, As if she didn't have a care; Just as she danced from there to here, She suddenly would disappear!"

Alternate verse for "Fatima" on you-tube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQwuhRct75s&feature=emb_logo

Steve Duscheck covered Waltzing Matilda in his lecture back in late 1970s/early 1980s. But the lecture notes are hard to come by. Tenyo put out some demos when they got manufacturing rights.

Steve St Eve published his routine and tips in the December 1968 issue of New Tops.
