Unique Beauty

I stumbled across a video the other day which showed an acrobat dancing inside a spinning ring. This is called a cyr ring and was reinvented by a man called Daniel Cyr, who developed it for use in the circus at the end of the 20th century.

Please enjoy these videos. I found them moving in their simple beauty and grace. It’s incredible what humans are capable of when they put their minds to it.
