If you could only master the very basics in ballet, not to worry. Many of us will never perform as professionals, but those with enough talent to twirl and spin and perform, err, seven double and one triple fouett├ęs en tournant are probably dancing their way onto a stage near you. PostTV has put all our half-second tippy-toe dances to shame and found some of the most talented ballet dancers around.

Watch this video and prepare to have a greater appreciation for The Nutcracker this year – these dancers simply leap off the ground and twirl in beautiful slow motion. It’s really an incredible way to understand the art of ballet. It’s simply breathtaking!
