Old-school contortionists:

Via Tigerclaw:

Here’s a recent viral hit from 1944 of the Ross Sisters (Betsy Ann Ross ‘Aggie’, Veda Victoria Ross ‘Maggie,’ and Dixie Jewel Ross ‘Elmira’). This singer, dancer trio had short-lived careers in entertainment. But what is most captivating, even by today’s standards, is their ability to contort their bodies into any position.

This is a jewel that just needed to be dusted-off to rediscover these Cirque du Soleil forerunners.
