This is the most amazing -- and sensual -- pair of dancers I've seen in a very long time, if ever. Their athleticism is astonishing, and yet it doesn't detract from the beauty of their movements by turning it into a gymnastic exercise (and wow, is she bendy!). I was spellbound by their performance; it made me want to cheer and cry at the same time.


(skip to about the 1-minute mark if you don't speak Russian!)




“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is
translated through you into action, and because there is only one of
you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it
will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”
― Martha Graham

I've always thought that dancing was only foreplay standing up. And most men in real life dance badly, so what does THAT tell you?

Nothing I didn't already know lol!

Edit: Although watching this scene, I suspect that Captain von Trapp might be very good indeed...

Beautiful! I found the immense trust between the two to be the most intimate part of the performance. 2 inches away from a vicious faceplant? I gotcha. :)

I love the audience reactions of getting all cuddly after about 2 minutes of watching. What an efficient method of evoking emotion!

I thought by your icon that the clip might be Argentine Tango, but I certainly wasn't disappointed by these two!

Isn't that something?? You can tell that they know each other's bodies -- the weight, the balance, the movements -- just incredibly well, and that each of them has total faith that the other person's hand or foot or waist or whatever will be right where it's supposed to be, always.

And yes, the audience was lovely to watch; I was so glad that the camera caught some of that :)

Thank you for sharing!
