When I lived in NYC I took advantage of the ability to attend the New York City Ballet on a regular basis. This was the golden age of the New York City Ballet. George Balanchine at the height of his art. The Ballet hadJerome Robbins as a second choreographer It was a time of great creativity. Children and job relocation eliminated the ability to go to the ballet on a regular basis. A couple of years ago I was fortunate to see the American Ballet Theatre performance of Swan Lake with Gillian Murphy. I was impressed and amazed at Ms. Murphy's technical skill in comparison to my memory of the skills of the top dancers of the 1976 - 1980 time period. I have blogged about the recent Swan Lake movie and my low (and fulfilled) expectations for the dancing. When I saw this clip of the Chinese Acrobatic Ballet I was just blow away. Enjoy the clip,
