Stilt Walker

nathaniel_starburst_copyStilt walking was practiced in ancient Greece as far back as the 6th century BC. Stilts have been historically used for navigating through rough terrain,  herding sheep, stilt racing, and even jousting!! Today you will see stilt walkers using drywall, peg, or jumping stilts. They typically perform in parades, circus events, festivals, and street fairs.
