From this description, in the sort of cinematic setting it's even possible, the balancing is probably a Shtick - cool looking but basically useless visual gags typically are.

For the more realistic version of moving around while balancing stuff in a way that looks sufficiently "impossible" to impress people, I'd probably go with a DX based Feats of Strength roll - I use that a lot for carnival trick type things. If you have a Performance (Juggling) skill in your game, that's a good option too.
