Stunting, also known as forming pyramids, is basically people picking each other up. It used to be that a stunt was people standing on eachother's backs. Now it means two bases and two spots (a front and a back) lifting up a flyer, and holding her in the air. There are many different types of stunts, from stationary preps, to high flying basket tosses. For more information and a compelete list of stunts, visit

It is a one legged stunt where the flyer lifts her leg ( the leg that the bases aren't holding onto) up behind her and holds the toe of her shoe with both hands behind her head. It requires a great deal of streching in order to do it.
