While a spinning orbit looks like a solar eclipse, stalls are another way of creating a simple optical illusion for the audience. A stall is when you stop the orbit from spinning or moving in some way while keeping tension built up. There are many variations and locations where a stall can be performed including the arm, chest, mouth, and chin.
