Daria is a three-time world all-around silver medalist. She won her medals in 2009, 2010, and 2011. Although she is now retired, it’s one of her performances from 2011 that has left over 10 million people speechless.

We’ve all heard the saying “a dog is man’s best friend”. Have you ever thought about why? Sure they provide companionship, even in a therapeutic capacity. So much so that their companionship is actually prescribed on a daily basis to people with debilitating social anxiety or those suffering from PTSD.

They can also protect you from other people if need be. They can also keep you warm, and alert you if something is wrong. All of these things are considered common attributes in most dogs.

Sometimes a dog’s friendship can extend beyond these things though. Animals are very sentient beings. They can sense things in the same ways that we do, and display emotions just like ours.

It’s no wonder then that, just as people can be heroes, when equipped with the right training dogs can be equally heroic. Well, that is just what Lusy Imbergerova set out to prove with her dance partner, Deril the dog.

Watch their military-inspired performance at the FCI 2016 Dog Dance World Championship and see why we’re so captivated! If your blown away as much as we are, go ahead and give us a like! Continue to the next page to see what has millions of people in tears.

When you think of dancing, what comes to mind? Ballet, hip-hop, or ballroom? Tango, tap, or jazz? There are so many beautiful styles of dance out there. But a group of four girls perform a style of dance that many are not familiar with, and it’s mind-blowing!

People often think of Riverdance when they think of Irish dancing, however, there are many other types and genres. Lots of Irish dancing, does involve a very quick and precise movement of the feet.

Four girls take the floor and begin in a perfectly straight line. Then, they fan out by moving their little feet as fast as can be. It’s hard to imagine how they are moving so quickly. It looks like they’re basically floating on air!

The girls are dressed in traditional Irish costumes and have clearly been dancing for quite some time now. Their movies are absolutely stunning and it’s hard to fathom how precise and in sync they all are.

One of the greatest lessons we all learn in life is the art of balance. Whether it’s balancing work and play, exercise and rest, love and responsibility, it is one of the most important things we can pursue in life. Some of us come by this naturally, while others of us flounder as we scrabble to reach that goal.

While the concept of balance is prevalent in our everyday thinking, there are some people who live and breathe balance as a state of being. Most of us treat the idea of balance like a philosophical and idealistic dream, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. The amazing performers in the videos, on the pages to follow, come prove that balance is not only concrete, it’s a talent.

What makes balance such an astonishing thing to see? The ever-present sense of danger. The way these people can manipulate their bodies at staggering heights and angles create a tension so thick, you can cut it with a knife!
