Captions are a bit of a mess in this one, going back and forth between referring to the dancer as "he" and "she."
Underwater dancing sounds like a lot of fun, glad they are able to live out their passion!

I think this has the potential of becoming an actual performance art. We've reached a collective level of technological, artistic, and physical competence for this to be adopted by others.

This space will definitely grow in the next five years.

If her body is that much flexible and easy under water then Imagine the efforts she put in for years and how flexible her body would be on ground.
