Off topic but en pointe!

This has nothing to do with publishing, spec fic, writing, or me personally, but YouTube makes it possible to see some amazing videos. Here's one that's a wonderful mix of acrobatics and classical ballet. I just wish I knew French so I'd know what the introduction says. If you don't speak French either, don't get bored and turn it off. If you do speak French, leave a comment and let the rest of us know what was said.

Wow! Talk about teamwork! It's truly amazing what kind of presentation hard work, talent, and innate flexibility can produce. The group in the video is, I think, the Chinese Ballet Circus of Guangdong. I found another video that seems to be their version of Swan Lake, although it's also got some more circus-like bits.

And to think I was proud I can still touch my toes!
