Thank you for that video.
That was exquisite.
The strength they must have is unbelievable,esp for her to balance on his bicep on her toes.

The only problem with the Chinese vis a vis ballet, is that they are vertically challenged a bit and so don't have the "lissome" grace of a taller woman.

Also, as a Ukrainian lady pointed out to me once, the ballerinas from eastern countries may be technically perfect but they lack the easy going grace of the westerner, especially in the arms.

Don't get me wrong - the smaller woman is my particular taste and is can do things her taller counterpart just cannot, especially, he-hmmm, those things, in a particular way, I mean.

Just a male perspective, that's all. :)

Fantastic... but am I the only person who gets butterflies in my tummy when I watch such acts? xx

That is quite amazing. I bet it was quite something to see that performed live!

I would have loved to have seen the live performance! That balancing was Incredible. I thought at first, ah, she's got a line hooked to her...but after that spotter came and stood next to the dancers, then I figured it was real. :/ :)


James,
hahaha, yes, hmmm, from a male perspective.... ;D
