Andrzej's Performance

The Di­et­rich twins were quite fa­mous for their con­tor­tion act, but they were al­so open to teach their art to all the chil­dren who were fas­ci­nat­ed by the show and whose par­ents were will­ing to pay for such ed­u­ca­tion. How­ev­er, it wasn't just an en­ter­tain­ment and they tru­ly turned kids in­to high class con­tor­tion­ists.

One of their fa­vorite pupils was An­drzej Kowal­czyk whose par­ents were from Poland. When An­drzej's par­ents took him to Al­bert and Fiona Di­et­rich, they said that the boy was "dou­ble joint­ed" since birth and could twist his legs in fun­ny ways. The kid was asked to demon­strate and the Di­et­rich twins were amazed to look at this rare gem that they saw in front of their eyes.

An­drzej en­tered the cir­cus stage al­most in­stant­ly as he un­know­ing­ly self-trained since an ear­ly age just by play­ing with his rub­bery legs all the time. It took him no ef­fort at all to sit in the split or put his foot be­hind his own back. In the end his par­ents didn't even have to pay for the ed­u­ca­tion be­cause the boy im­me­di­ate­ly start­ed do­ing good mon­ey on the shows.
