- "And, to amaze and amuse you with feats of gymnastics and spellbinding acrobatics, Atuarre presents her pet prodigy, Pakka!"
An acrobat was a type of performer who entertained audiences through feats of gymnastics skill and agility. Due to their natural dexterity, members of the Gados species made excellent acrobats. For instance, the Leaping Tee family toured the galaxy as a acrobat troupe. Due to their natural communal intelligence and ability to work together flawlessly, groups of Bilars made excellent acrobats as well. Certain droids, known as acrobat droids, also entertained through acrobatics.
