Video: Strauss, synchronized swimming ... but no pool

Maybe it's because there's not a lot of water in Texas. But these kids from an elementary school in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area pull off a pretty entertaining synchronized-swimming routine during their school's talent show.

Classical MPR's Jodi Gustafson spotted this video online and shared it. The music is Johann Strauss's Blue Danube Waltz.

We're pretty sure the music and the video will make you smile. Even without water, these kids make a splash.
