Barely Balanced is billed as an acrobatic act that will “strike fear into the hearts of insurance adjusters everywhere.”

Former Gamma Phi Circus performer Margret Ebert ’09 is the newest member of the daredevil trio. She now contorts her limbs and juggles knives with the show that is inspired by Jackie Chan, Cirque Du Soleil, and the Marx Brothers. She has performed aerial silks and clowning with Circo Rose Entertainment.

With a bachelor’s degree in costuming, Ebert has spent time backstage as well, working companies such at Blue Man Group Chicago, Navy Pier, and the Illinois Shakespeare Festival.
