i thank you for making what has to be
the best video i have ever seen

    I will never get that music out of my head. They move like they have no feet! Would love to know the lyrics. Then again, I’d end up singing them and probably get strange looks 🙂 Absolutely amazing. Can’t imagine how many hours of practice went into that dance.

    They look like they’re floating! My 4 yr old was captivated. Love it.

    Awesome! I am guessing the snapping mimics the spin put on the spindle, since Russian spinning involves resting a spindle in a cup!

    It is weirdly folksy/and Ziegfield follies at the same time – really beautiful.

    they must be on roller skates-reaaly is mesmerizing to watch-I can’t even begin to think how many hours of rehearsal that took. Wonderful!
