What’s the difference between dancing and gymnastics? Or the difference between gymnastics and acrobatics? The line can be pretty blurry sometimes. If you’ve ever been to a performance by Cirque du Soleil, then you know how mesmerizing these performances can be. No matter what you categorize them as, it is art in the finest sense of the word.
When Valeriy and Yulia stepped on stage to perform this stunning routine, no one knew exactly what was going to happen. However, once the music started, everyone was left in complete awe. The Ukrainian dancers started with a couple routine moves, and then suddenly things got crazy. With a combination of lifts and flips, the two put out a performance unlike anything you will ever see on “Dancing With The Stars.”
The routine is called “Hand to Hand” and is set to the song “Heartbeat” by Nneka. The pair work for a circus agency in Ukraine called Maximaa, and they perform together all over the world. With the difference in size between the two of them, their synchronized moves seem all the more impressive. In the end, it doesn’t matter if we call it dancing or acrobatics. The only thing that matters is just how cool it is to watch.
