The Dancers Of The Igor Moiseyev Ballet Are Absolutely Mesmerizing In This Upbeat Routine

I’ve never been the most graceful person: I’m actually quite clumsy at times, but this has never stopped me from getting up and dancing!

I’ve always loved it, and the way it lifts my spirits. I usually move in a way that makes me feel comfortable — after all, I don’t know many styles of dance or how I could even try to replicate their different styles. So when I saw this clip by the Igor Moiseyev Ballet, I couldn’t stop watching!

The dances in the mesmerizing clip combine speed, agility, and perfect timing to create a one-of-a-kind routine. Each individual is skilled and graceful, and perfectly executes even the toughest of moves.

But it’s perhaps the speed of the dance that is the most perplexing. The steady tempo can be a little jarring, and sometimes makes the dancers seem like they are almost floating in the air. Then, they go faster and faster, until each person becomes a blur. I couldn’t tear my eyes away from the screen, and I wonder how long it took each one of them to learn the choreography to perfection…

Now watch the clip to witness the almost otherworldly routine!
