    Fantastic and inspiring! As a coach and trainer of athletes I am AMAZED at the power, grace and control of the dancers…oh yea…the choreography is “buck” :-)

    An amazing performance. I wish the video was a straight shoot of the event with minimal edits/cuts, especially in the last section – it is a physically astonishing performance and any cuts/edits (in this case) take away from the magic IMHO and make it seem much more common place. Also, higher resolution would be great!
