Hi Chee,

The only thing that isn't allowed to touch the table is your non playing hand.  So any other part of your body can touch the table as long as you don't move the surface of the table.

So you can literally stand up on the table? Haha.

Yes you can... but it would be difficult to do without moving the surface of the table.
