I do love a giant post of really awesome acro videos. So here is one:
Alex Lane, doing epic Roue Cyr, new tricks, great movement. Looks like he went to the big Montreal circus school. Youtube Alex Lane
Rubberlegz keeps pushing what he’s up to, so I love him. Not convinced by drainpipe jeans but clearly he needs the clearance. Youtube Rubberlegz
Alliance Russian Parkour ‘Crew’ / ‘Team’. Looks a little bit like they are destroying their bodies, but they’re young, slightly crazy and doing huge tricks, doubles anywhere and everywhere. Youtube Alliance
Johan Bichot. Crazy cute and elegant acrobatics. Really different and really nice mood. Nice hat too. 😀 Youtube Johan
Peter Jasko – I found this video and was super awed by it. This guy is an amazing dancer, doing some super interesting stuff that I can’t describe very well. Watch it and see. Youtube PJ
A skating film made for the Channel Four tv show “Concrete Circus” featuring in this short film, Kilian Martin from Spain. Kilian is a skater who skates like Rodney Mullen, whom I love more than pretty much anything. Listen to Mullen’s life advice: Mullen Youtube
The pool scene is particularly awesome. I am totally a sucker for real slow motion.

Abbas Farid is a British Football Freestyler who’s won competitions and awards and that sort of thing, check out his website here: Abbasfarid.com for lots of info about that.
He does ace body rolling obviously, and integrates foot juggling, acrobatics and some amazing ball control that I’ve never seen before. He’s a bit good in other words. 😀
A promo for a circus full of lumberjacks, er sorry, Canadians. All the guys have at least a level 4 beard and in general it’s awesome. It features much silliness and quite a few hardcore circus skills.
Students from the circus school in Bordeaux, Dorian Thevenet, Boris Couty, Dimitri Rizelo, strun Lucas, Bruno Samon, Maxime Sales and Tom Lacoste, clearly put a lot of effort into making this video, great filming, great skills. and great use of white powder. ACE.
The spin on the unicycle (4:40) and the 2 toe spin on skates (5:40) stand out for me.
Thanks Maelle for the link. Smiles, Drew
This is the competitive sport of sepak takraw (literally translated: “kick ball”), as demonstrated by players from Thailand.
The Sepak Takraw Association of Canada has some good info on the international history of this sport.
I always love people who use handheld lighting in their shows, and these guys do, but also lots of super cool stuff with balls of lots of different sizes….

Foot juggling, and balancing, while doing some Chinese Pole stuff, on a lamppost!
