This stunning video shows the amazing skills of Olga Henry, a slackliner who can balance on rope and empty beer bottles wearing ballet shoes.
Olga, 34, from California, USA, started slacking lining three years ago, and decided to give it a try wearing pointed shoes.
Olga said: “I decided to try slacklining wearing ballet shoes to overcome my weakness – I couldn’t stand on my toes in shoes like how some people can on a slackline.
“It’s a common trick so I thought I’d try it in ballet shoes instead, but it still was really hard to do for ages.
“I kept trying and trying until one day I was able to stand on the slackline, and eventually I took my first steps.
“I believe that they were the first steps on pointe on a slackline, which is awesome.
“It was extremely hard to walk on bottles because I can’t move my legs to balance like I do on a slackline, so I have to use my upper body instead.
“I am not a ballerina and I’ve never done ballet, I took one class after I learned how to slackline in pointed shoes and was disappointed that during the class I couldn’t wear pointe shoes right away and had to hold on to the railing!
“I’m also scared of heights so getting over the fear will take some time, but I already started feeling that I want to do it again and take those hard falls and learn.
“Turns out if you can slackline, then you can walk on almost anything!
