All-Time Gravity-Defying Great Original Videos: Dance and Movement!

Videos that always give me a lift -- hope they do the same for you! Also see my collection of greatest uplifting music videos.

Includes the "Greatest dance number ever filmed," the "Best video of all time," one dancer becoming many dancers, many dancers becoming one dancer, the smallest, the legends, as well as the great, the merely famous, the funny and the viral ... not to mention parkour, acrobatics, and amazing fight choreographies!

Enjoy!
