And I thought the Rambert dancers were bendy! This video freaks me out.

That's the most flexible contortionist I've ever seen! I liked the part where she stands on one leg with the other leg lifted so far to the side that it crosses behind her head way over to the other side, and then she casually drapes the arm on that side over her leg.

I just tried this routine and found I could do ALL the moves, no trouble. To be fair, I did change it a little: I performed most of the upright material on pointe.

OK, so have you got anything harder?

Cheater! Seriously, though, Stuart, I hope that if you and I are ever able to attend the same CriticalDance get-together, I'll get to see you perform a contortionist act for our entertainment.

HOLY CAMOLY THAT IS SCARY.

And I find it scary that you, Stuart, were able to do all of those scary moves.

BUT CAN YOU SQUEEZE YOURSELF THROUGH A TENNIS RACQUET BY DISLOCATING YOUR ARMS?!?!

Daniel Browning Smith can. :D.

I've heard he goes through about two hours of flexibility training a day that enhances his natural scaryness.

...I mean, contortionist abilities.
