Staying in Unison with Acro-Dancing Twins Teagan and Sam Rybka
This post is part of our monthlong series, #WhyIMove. Throughout May, we’ve shared stories of dancers from all over the globe. To see more of Teagan and Sam’s dance act, follow @teagan_rybka, @sam_rybka and @rybkatwinsofficial on Instagram.
“We love to perform and entertain people, and we feel at home on the stage. Our mum was a dancer and an acrobat and passed on her lifelong passion to us. This is #WhyIMove,” says 20-year-old Teagan Rybka (@teagan_rybka), one half of the Australian acro-dance duo @rybkatwinsofficial with her twin sister Sam (@sam_rybka). “Someone once told us that when they watch us it’s more like watching one person because of our strong unison, but dancing together is more challenging than people think. Trying to dance, execute acro-tricks and stay in perfect unison takes a lot of practice and patience. We’re both very similar in ability because we’ve worked together and pushed each other. We’ve spent most of our life upside down or on our hands down at the studio simply doing what we love!”
