A mind-boggling video of Russian ballerinas is going viral thanks to a recent Imgur post that called out how freakishly cool the performance is. In the five-minute video, which was uploaded in 2012, several ballerinas appear to float on air, but the real mind trick is they’re actually not floating. The dancers are simply performing on the tips of their toes, also known as en pointe in the ballet world. The synchronized movement coupled with the flowy gowns gives the appearance of floating, and it’s jaw-dropping to witness.
