Pyramids


An acrobatic formation of three or more people in which two or more people support a tier of higher people. People above the bottom tier may kneel or stand on the shoulders, backs or thighs of the people below them. Typically, the number of people in each tier is one greater than the tier immediately above it, resulting in a triangular structure.
