If you ever thought ballet was boring, think again.
The Chinese Acrobatic Ballet has re-invented the classic version of Swan Lake, into something a little more interesting. The performers combine ballet with acrobatics to pull of almost the impossible… dancing on heads.
Performers part of The Chinese Acrobatic Ballet really play the part of their characters, as monkeys jump through ropes and frogs take part in “upside-down ballet”.
The most impressive of the acts is, of course, the part where the main swan dances on her partners head. Check it out about 3 minutes in, in the youtube video.
