The ulTRa Hank!
The ulTRa 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 done close-up?
- 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 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 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 $8 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 can also be used with a ITR 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 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 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 Hank:
What are the differences between the NEW ulTRa 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. For more a more detailed comparison, click here.
I already have the Ultimate Dancing Hank. Why would I want the ulTRa Dancing Hank?
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 Hank?
The ulTRa 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). For more detailed information about lighting, please click here.
