An Arm And A Leg To Dance

Got this youtube from Merryfeet, whom herself is a dance enthusiast, of a dance performance where the girl was without an arm and the guy was without a leg.

Yet their movement was so beautiful that the audience wept.

I watched the clip and I was very impressed. Not so much with the girl coz it's still relatively easy to dance with just one arm but to dance with only one leg with such grace and dexterity? Whoa!

I figured that this guy must be super fit to be able to grace those moves while supporting her entire weight at the same time. I also liked the way he walked with the crutch. One would have expected people to hobble on the crutch but in the dance it was almost as if he was on prosthetics. Despite the unnatural gait, it was all so graceful.

I was never a big fan of dance eventhough I have been to quite a few performances, be it contemporary, modern jazz, ballet, ballroom but only because I was dragged there by GFs 1.x and 2.x. If you see claw marks leading to the entrance of the usual places like Singapore Indoor Stadium or Victoria Theatre, they are probably mine.

But this was something I could have watched appreciatively....

.... and without nodding off, drooling.
