1. New York and Brooklyn from Michael_Novakhov (111 sites): Brooklyn Eagle: This Brooklyn woman can shoot arrows with her feet

There’s a peculiar industry growing inside Brooklyn nightclubs, and it involves acrobatics, bows, arrows — and feet.

Contortion foot archery is exactly what it sounds like: People distort their bodies all while shooting a bow and arrow with their toes.

Aryn Shelander of Crown Heights, 29, enjoys taking it up a notch, combining foot archery and contortion with partner acrobatics.

She routinely performs handstands midair while using her partner, Jeff Stilt, 33, as support. But it’s a different feat that really elicits gasps from the crowd. “People generally freak out when I pull my ankles under my chin,” she said.

The entire act requires immense dexterity and is part art performance, part sports spectacle. It requires flexibility, strength, balance and grace all at the same time.

The artist said her performances enhance the party and give attendees something to remember long after the night is over.

“It adds to the element of awe and amazement,” Shelander said. “It’s something very tangible for people to talk about. People go home from a party and they might say a party is awesome, but to say that they saw someone shoot a bow and arrow with their feet while balancing on top of another person is a pretty memorable moment.”

Shelander and Stilt have performed at venues all across New York City, including at Brooklyn Borough Hall.

Shelander trained in San Francisco before eventually honing her skills in Mongolia, where the form of contortion she practices originated. Mongolian contortion tends to be slow, elegant and steady, as opposed to other methods that veer toward grotesque and erotic.

In addition to foot archers and contortionists, there are other performers who can also make a night out truly unforgettable.

Take Joy Fully, 31, of Bushwick, who works as an acrobat and aerialist at many Brooklyn venues, including House of of Yes, Lot 45 and at BangOn!NYC’s parties.

Fully believes that her performances, along with those of other artists, help break the ice on the dance floor. Some partygoers, she said, may be shy when they first arrive to the club and the dance floor is sparse. Seeing someone else acting so freely makes them feel more open.

Fully has performed in cages, hoops and platforms high above the dance floor, molding her movements to the music while attendees dance below.

“We live in this society where we want to see people doing amazing things all the time and have as much stimulus as possible,” Fully said. “Aerial puts you at this different vantage point. We bring energy up to a level that dance can’t because you’re elevated above people. It’s dancing in the sky.”

Want to see foot archery and acrobatics live this weekend? House of Yes will have aerial performances at its “Full Moon” party, and Shelander and Fully will be performing foot archery and contortion at a pop-up event on Saturday.

It’s finally beginning to feel like May out there, and those magical meteorologists are predicting a spectacular weekend of clear skies and warm temperatures. Just in time, too, as Brooklyn’s street festival season is kicking into full gear.

Six Brooklyn flings, fairs, festivals and fiestas are taking over streets around the borough — enough to get your fill of fresh air before a gloomy, wet Monday.

Here are the details.

All weekend

Prospect Park Alliance’s Spring Fling

Prospect Park will host an action-packed weekend of events celebrating spring, including early morning bird walk, an 1860s-style exhibition baseball game, Smorgasburg, and a staged reading of Molière’s “The Misanthrope” featuring original music by Tony and two-time Obie Award winner STEW. Sunday’s Spring Fling Fair features a full program of hands-on, family-friendly activities.

All weekend at Prospect Park.
See website for dates, times and costs of individual events.

Saturday

Bayfest

Noon – 6 p.m. 
Emmons Avenue and East 27th Street

Fifth Avenue from Sterling Place to 12th Street
Website

67th Annual Norwegian Day Parade

Though not exactly a festival, this parade is one of the most unique community events in the city, commemorating the May 17, 1893, signing of the Norwegian constitution. Marchers will don traditional Norwegian garb and accompany floats down Third Avenue.

Marchers will line up on Third Avenue, between 83rd and 84th streets, and head down to Leif Ericson Park, between Sixth and Seventh avenues, where the reviewing stand will be located. The parade will kick off at 1:30 p.m. and celebrations will continue to late afternoon.
