When I was a little kid, I could do cartwheels, backbends, and the splits, no questions asked. Now that I’m a grown-up, though? I don’t think I’ll be attempting those moves anytime soon.
Besides, even in my heyday, I could never hold a candle to some of the young acrobats working today! Judging from what I’ve seen on talent shows, the world is just chock-full of incredibly talented contortionists and gymnasts, all under the age of 10!
Just look at little Emily Moskalenko! We’ve covered her in the past when she appeared on a Romanian talent show earlier this year, but it’s her audition for Ukraine’s Got Talent back in 2014 that really has me floored.
Just 7 years old here, Emily’s routine is reminiscent of this ballerina who created a new art form out of pole dancing. Emily is doing something similar, but she seems to be tempering the grown-up art form of pole dancing with rhythmic gymnastics.
While I was initially worried that the pole dancing aspect was a bit too mature for little Emily, the routine that she performs is totally jaw-dropping. I had no idea that anybody could move like that! Check out the video below to see how the judges react.
And if Emily’s incredible talent astounds you, please SHARE on Facebook for anyone else who loves the magic of incredible gymnastic performances like this one!
