Circus Performance: The Cloud Swing

Like a dancer in the air, Cloud Swing trapeze artist Regina Dobrovitskayas combines powerful athleticism with grace and elegance in her act that includes a soft “u” shaped rope in which she perches and swings high atop the ring. Once Regina gains momentum in the Cloud Swing, she releases, tumbling through the air in an apparent free fall. But just as it appears she will fall, this veteran aerialist catches the edge of the rope with her feet and demurely twirls and spins and entwines herself safely into the soft rope. Watch an excerpt from her amazing performance.
