The ulTRa Dancing Hank!
For the first time in Dancing Hank history, No Special Backdrop Needed! Can
be performed on stage or even in a living room!
Two of the most asked questions about the Dancing Hank are:
- Can it be
- What kind of Backdrop should I use?
Well, for the first time since we started selling Dancing Hank products
almost 11 years ago, we will no longer have to answer those questions! The new
ulTRa Dancing Hank no longer needs any special backdrop and it can be
performed in close-up conditions!
How is this possible? It's possible because the ulTRa Dancing Hank
uses super strong close-up invisible thread! The gimmick comes with 200 Yards of
super strong pre-stripped invisible thread and you won't believe how strong this
invisible thread is! That's more than you'll need to practice and master the
gimmick and have enough for many performances! And there's no need to spend an
arm and a leg for strong invisible thread! We also offer this 200 yard spool of
Super Strong invisible thread separately for only $5 a spool!
The gimmick works much like the original Ultimate Dancing Hank, but it's been
totally redesigned with our state of the art prototyping technology! The gimmick
is also much smaller then the original Ultimate Dancing Hank. This means it's
much lighter and easier to handle. It's also small enough to be hidden inside a
small case or even under your jacket!
The ulTRa Dancing Hank also comes with a ITR Boss reel by James
George. This reel combined with the ulTRa Dancing Hank gimmick, opens the
door to moves and routines that where never possible until now. Imagine being
able to cause the hank or other small light weight objects to dance around the
Foulard then fly out of a bottle, across the room, around your body or dance on
the floor just a few feet away from your spectators!
Also works great with Steve Fearson's Vectra Line!
The ulTRa Dancing Hank also comes with a 12" white silk and an 12"
white diamond cut silk. The diamond cut looks almost as large as the full size
silk on the Ultimate Dancing Hank so you can also use this on Stage, and the
lighter weight diamond cut silk allows the hank to fly to the gimmick faster and
again, No Off Stage Assistance or Special Backdrop Needed!
But don't think the ulTRa Dancing Hank is just for hanks! You can put
many other light weight objects on the gimmick. How about making a butterfly
flutter around the room? Control a balloon, animate Plastic Silverware (you can
find them that look like metal)! Let your imagination run wild!! We have!!

Here are some common questions and answers about the NEW ulTRa Dancing
What are the differences between the NEW ulTRa Dancing Hank and the
Original Ultimate Dancing Hank?
While the basic functioning is the same,
the ulTRa Dancing Hank uses close-up invisible thread instead of stage
thread. This allows you to perform moves in close-up that where not possible
with the Ultimate Dancing Hank unless you had a special backdrop to help keep
the thread invisible. With the ulTRa Dancing Hank no special backdrop is
needed! So the ulTRa Dancing Hank can be performed anywhere close-up
invisible thread can be used. The ulTRa Dancing Hank is also much smaller
then the Ultimate Dancing hank. This means it has less weight so it's easier to
work with. The smaller size also allows you to hide the gimmick in more places
such as in a small case or even under your jacket. Every part of the ulTRa
Dancing Hank is also newly designed for better control and functioning.
I already have the Ultimate Dancing Hank. Why would I want the ulTRa
Both have their own uses. The Ultimate Dancing Hank
uses stage thread. This is much stronger and very hard to break. So if you
perform on a big stage your Ultimate Dancing Hank might still be your gimmick of
choice. But, if you want to perform the Dancing Hank in more close-up conditions
such as in living rooms, bars, restaurants, or in a smaller sized audience, you
could use the ulTRa Dancing Hank. The ulTRa Dancing Hank will
allow you to do this just a few feet from your spectators. In some conditions
you can even walk out into the audience and even have a spectator hold the
bottle as the silk dances in the bottle and flys out!!
Where can I perform the ulTRa Dancing Hank?
Dancing Hank can be performed anywhere, but some moves require proper
invisible thread lighting. Which means anywhere you can perform with invisible
thread you should be able to use the ulTRa Dancing Hank. Most indoor
venues are right for invisible thread work. You just have to avoid really bright
lighting. Basically anywhere you can perform a floating dollar bill with
invisible thread, you can do all the moves with the ulTRa Dancing Hank.
The only other restriction is that your spectators can't see behind the foulard
(This is the case with all zombie ball type gimmicks).
