Who thought up some of those ideas, and how are they even possible???!!!!! On top of all that strength and control and flexibility, they make it look oh so effortless.

Uh...wow! I think my jaw about fell off my face when she stood on his shoulder on ONE freakin' tip toe! Thanks for sharing!

Insane...

Wow.

@WordsCrafter: Clearly they're acrobats as well as dancers cuz nobody else bends THAT way.

@Jemi: Yeah. Supreme!

@Yat-Yee: Ha! I wanted to say just that--is this really possible? When she stood en pointe on his shoulders, I almost stopped breathing.

@Shallee: Well, my jaw joined yours on the floor. Gasp, I did.

@Victoria: Yeah. That says it.

Exquisite & unbelievable at the same time. Can't begin to imagine the strength, talent and discipline required.

HOLY COW. That was one of the most graceful, incredible, stunning performances I have ever witnessed. WOW!

Claire Dawn said...

Why can't Asians be normal? How do they even have that capacity? It's like they've evolved and didn't tell us.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

@Viva: They make it look so effortless, when it has to be incredibly difficult.

@LT: I'm right there with you. I've never seen anything like it.

@Claire: Yeah, in my dreams I couldn't move like that. It's unreal.
