THEIR DANCE CHALLENGES THE LAWS OF GRAVITATION
"Try jumping up and doing a mid-air move, then landing on the ground right on your knees, jumping up immediately, and doing it over and over again! Do a spin, standing on tiptoe in soft boots, so fast that no one can see your face. And then immediately drop to your knees and circle the perimeter of the stage.
At the same time, beguile the beautiful ladies who calmly and coquettishly look at your courageous dance as you seek her favor.”
The Washington Post (USA)
