Some entertainers like to take their routines to another level, all so they can captivate the audience. This is definitely one of those performances.

These ballerinas with puppets are one of those miraculous displays of art that leave you stunned. Three women perform a ballet routine while connected to two dolls each, and it’s hilarious.

It’s a comical performance so ingenious it will have you slapping your knee.

What looks like a group of 9 dancers is actually just 3!

The ballerinas perfectly blend dance and comedy into one unforgettable routine.

At first, it looks like 9 dancers on stage are getting ready to perform. But look a little closer and you’ll see that each dancer is connected to two puppets.

The ballerinas start performing their routine in a line and it’s really funny. Kudos to their creativity!

Long poles connect the ballerinas to the dolls and they’re placed on the legs and arms of the puppets so every time the ballerinas move, the dolls mimic them.

It’s brilliant!

Each of the ballerinas’ moves is matched by their puppets – and the whole scene has the crowd laughing.

The mix of ballet, comedy, and acting works, and the audience can’t get enough. Altogether, the ballerinas jerk their arms making the dolls go wild and it looks like they’re really getting into it.

One viewer commented:

“Just fantastic. Showing that artists also have humour and a great sense of fun!”

The brainchild of this act deserves a pat on the back!

I wonder how many dolls this would work with? How about adding a few more next time?

Dancing is hard enough so this really takes some major upper-body and leg strength.

These ballerinas are amazing, how do they keep going for so long? This requires a different level of fitness just so we’re clear.

The performance has yet another clever twist.

If you’re thinking their routine is done to classical music, you’re absolutely right. However, some other dance songs pop in as well, and it’s hilarious!

MC Hammer, Beyonce, and Vanilla Ice’s music can be heard during the performance.

The ballerinas even ‘raise the roof,’ with the dolls following suit.

It’s a mirror dance to the fullest, so for every move the dancers make, the dolls mimic the movement.

The audience explodes in laughter with every move. This is not something you’ll see all the time!

Who knew ballet could be so funny?

Towards the end of the video, the dancers spin on a pivot with all 6 dolls swinging around.

For the grand finale, the comical ballerinas whip the dolls around in a 360-degree turn over and over again.

Good thing they’re puppets, or else the final act may have given them whiplash!

Gracefully bowing, the ballerinas scurry off the stage. Even them walking off stage is super fun to see, all the little puppet legs rapidly moving about.

These ballerinas are extremely talented and hysterical that you won’t stop laughing until it’s done.
