Swan Lake


7 minutes you won't regret.

It's done by the Chinese State Circus, and worth watching all the way to the end.

Yvonne said...

That was great. Thanks.

Lena said...

I don't think people are supposed to be able to do that!

Melia said...

Wow, thanks. That was amazing, beautiful and a little bit freaky.

Heather said...

Wow. That's some balancing talent.

Melissa said...

Amazing... but, um... don't toe shoes have metal in the tips? That poor guy probably has bruises all over his arms and head!
LOVED the frogs ;)

Crystal said...

No, there's no metal in toe shoes. The tips are made of paper, burlap, and glue. They are very hard, though.

That woman is freakishly flexible. Very impressive.

I'm sitting here in utter amazement. Can you imagine being A. That Talented and B. That FLEXIBLE!!!
She looked like rubber, there's no way I would ever be able to bend and balance like she did. I'm impressed. Now I want to go see Swan Lake in person!

What a fun twist on the traditional Swan Lake

Thanks for sharing!

I can't help but wonder how many times she fell on her face in practice.

Loved the frogs.

1st time here, and I'm poking around. :) What a fab video- at school last week we were able to watch the Golden Dragon's Chinese acrobatic team. It was MOSt awesome. I had my husband pull out my 3rd grader, and bring him to the HS so he could see them- so glad I did!

Love the blog, shall return- and I agree with your comment thing- I hate that 99% of my visitors leave NOTHING. :)
