Further details

The Twirlywoos are at a gym hall where they watch a gymnast practicing a routine on a balance beam. When the gymnast leaves, Toodloo is eager to try it out and leaps up on the beam, performing a gymnastic routine.

Chickedy and Chick also try to balance on the beam - they run along it really fast, holding hands to steady themselves. Next it's Great BigHoo's, who finds it difficult and wobbles around, nearly falling off a few times. The others are at the end of the beam encouraging Great BigHoo along it.

Suddenly the gymnast comes back and so Great BigHoo makes a run for it, getting all the way to the end of the beam and knocking into the others! They fall into the basin of chalk dust that the gymnasts use to help their grip, and as the hooter sounds, they fly away, creating a big cloud of chalk which surprises the gymnast as she comes back into the room.
