1. He has to be stronger than 10 weightlifters..and her sense of balance

is remarkable...that act when she was on his head must have been the most dangerous, as there was a person there to catch her if she fell...

I have never seen anything that delicate in all my life..thanks for linking.

2. I was wishing

there had been a "spotter" there watching for the whole performance. She could have done serious damage to herself if she fell or even died.

You're welcome, angslessk.

15. And, I'll bet they became what they are and can do what they do because they practice, practice,

practice. Their accomplishments represent years of hard work as well as talent. Amazing.

3. That girl was nothing but bone and muscle. She's too damned skinny. She must

burn thousands of calories doing those moves. She need to eat more!

4. I'd say it's more likely;

 

She has a terrifically high metabolism.

Plus, both of them have about a 1% body fat ratio.

5. The young lady

also appears to be double-jointed....she stretches her torso and legs beyond 180 degrees.

9. I couldn't stop paying attention to how far out

 

her hip bones stuck.

I'd be curious about the typical life expectancy of someone who does this for a living.

11. Let's leave the body policing out of it

We don't know anything about her other than she is an amazing physical artist.

18. Who's body policing? My stepson was that small for many years (and still is too thin) and

I was constantly told by doctors and nurses that he had to eat more or he could die if he ever had a serious illness as he had no reserves to fall back on. (It was a constant battle to get him to eat enough. For whatever reason, perhaps related to autism, he has never eaten enough to put on any body fat.) Fortunately, he has never had a serious illness.

It isn't a matter of body policing; it's a matter of health.

12. Her being tiny is what makes that guy's neck and arms not snap into pieces. n/t

6. Amazing strength, skill and grace.

She has zero body fat but also, she has a very slight frame that makes her seem even thinner. I have such a frame (small boned) and it does contribute to a lightness of foot that I didn't fully appreciate until I was pregnant and lost it temporarily. I also took ballet for some years and see she appears to be a classically trained ballerina. I know I never had such flexibility though! Holy cow!

People might be surprised at the strength required to do ballet. That was beautiful to watch! Thanks for posting!

10. Her legs are like arms...

... and she looks like she weighs about 60 lbs. Ballet in the air! Beau-ti-ful! Bravo!
Thanks for sharing this stunning find.

13. She is like a beautiful bird in flight.

Both, so beautiful and handsome! I have never witnessed such grace, not even in Russian ballerinas.

16. Beautiful.

Like the audience, I was in open-mouthed, wide-eyed awe.

And holding my breath. Were you?

As for the body police....

WTF???

Appreciate the beauty of the performance.

19. This video

was sent to me from a guy I graduated high school with and haven't seen in years. But I wrote back to him after I watched it twice in amazement, thanking him for sending it. I'm very happy that so many others here got to see it, too.
