This video, filmed by director Spike Jonze, captures Los Angeles street dancer Charles “Lil Buck” Riley as he performs an amazing interpretation of “The Dying Swan” from Camille Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals with a live musical accompaniment by the award-winning cellist Yo-Yo Ma.  Lil Buck specializes in a dance called the Memphis Jook, and exhibits superhuman balance, grace and  flexibility.  Thanks to Wine and Bowties for turning me onto this.
