CNN posted a video taken by an impressed onlooker who watched as the Limbo Queen herself, Shemika Charles, managed to limbo underneath a row of airport chairs while waiting for her flight out of Philadelphia. It’s a stunt you have to see to believe! In the video, she sizes up the amount of space she has to work with, stretches her limbs and uses the sides of her feet to propel her forward without ever letting her back touch the ground. She’s simultaneously graceful and mind boggling to watch.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Charles has impressed audiences and the internet with her limboing skills. A video of her limboing under an SUV was a hit online, and she’s even appeared on The Today Show. According to her official Facebook page, “In 2016 she competed in Beijing, China where she won her 2nd Guinness World Record for ‘The Farthest Distance to Limbo under 12 inches.’ Her first record in 2010 still holds as the lowest limbo dancer in the world.”

Though she lives in New York now, Charles is from Trinidad and Tobago, which is where the limbo dance originated. Follow her future attempts at impressive feats here.
