What happens when ballet dancers bump into a busking string quartet?

An everyday busking scene became a moment of pure joy when some passing ballet dancers decided to join in

This New York string quartet probably expected a normal day’s busking when they set up their music stands. Instead, they got something altogether more extraordinary – and joyful.

The group chose Bach’s masterpiece, the Brandenburg Concerto No. 3

Here they are getting into their Baroque swing…

Enter stage right… a ballet dancer

Wait, where did she come from?

This super flexible guy appears

Look at the height on that leg, oof.

And treats the subway crowd to a slick pirouette

He’s making us feel a bit dizzy actually.

Watch the whole thing below

 And wait for a warm fuzzy feeling to hit…
