Plate Spinning


A performer spins a row of plates each resting precariously on top of a thin flexible pole. The performer starts at one end, and rushes back and forth to keep them spinning and make sure the plates don’t fall. Often performed as part of the 'Happy Cooks' act. Plate spinning can also involve holding multiple poles in the hands while spinning a plate on each one.
