The next performance is something you have to see to believe. Christine Bédard, Marco Dieckmann and Yves Gagnon, an acrobatic trio known as the Russian Bar Trio, are some of the only people in the world who've been able to master this art form.

Watch the Russian Bar Trio perform. Watch

Christine, a former gymnast from Canada, flips and flies high in the air before landing on a bar that's only 4.5 inches wide. While it requires great skill to perform the acrobatics, Yves and Marco are the ones doing the heavy lifting.

"It's almost like a grand piano hitting your shoulder," Yves says. "Her body weight, with the g-force multiplies, ends up being about 500 pounds."
