Ballet as acrobatics

A quite extraordinary performance of Swan Lake by the Great Chinese State Circus. Perhaps not entirely conventional 'ballet', but very beautiful to watch and demonstrating amazing skills on the part of the two central dancers - balance, dexterity with grace and total confidence in each other.

- a suitably uplifting way to begin the New Year for this blog, I think.
