Diabolos are recognized as Chinese circus props. It’s a large axle (a bobbin-like object with a cup at each end) that’s spun with a string that’s attached to two sticks. As with the American yo-yo, there are tons of fun balancing tricks to learn when using the diabolos. A Chinese troupe of four known as The Diabolos Girls will demonstrate their skills with a synchronized acrobatic dance on Little Big Shots.
The Diabolos Girls on Little Big Shots are featured in the Cirque du Soleil show “La Nouba“ at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. If you want to see them live, do it now. The show is closing December 31, 2017. Little Big Shots airs Wednesdays at 8pm on NBC.
