11-Year-Old Contortionist Nails Target in Foot Archery Trickshot
Bella Gantt, 11, has a knack for foot archery, a contortionist feat which involves shooting a bow while in a handstand.
She started with ballet, then moved to acrobatics, and about four years ago started taking lessons at Dance Extensions Performing Art Center in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. There she discovered foot archery.
“She was just naturally good at it,” said Betsy Shuttleworth, co-director of the art center, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.
Now Bella, a freckled redhead from Greensburg, Pennsylvania, travels around the world, performing. Last year, she’s been featured on NBC’s “Little Big Shots” with Steve Harvey.
“I was nervous, but at the same time, super excited and happy. Because that stuff usually only happens in dreams, and the dream came true,” she told the Post-Gazette.
