Cirque du Soleil: VOLTA Crew Teach Us Crazy Shape Diving Tricks

Cirque du Soleil never fails to take our breath away thanks to their collection of massively talents acrobats, dancers, and tumblers, and now they are bringing us even more new and exciting acts for their VOLTA show! Young Hollywood heads to rehearsal where we jump through hoops (literally!) to catch up with their new Shape Diving team, a traditional form of Chinese acrobatics that involves--you guessed it--jumping through hoops! Team leader Enmeng Song explains to us the concept behind the stunts, and how it fits in to VOLTA's themes of expressing individuality, and the 3 simple rules of shape diving: dive, don't hit the rings, and roll! After a demonstration of a typical shape diving trick, it is now up to us to put the team's rules into action! See how we fare when we take on the hoops!
