This Syrian dancer takes her skills to the empty streets of Paris...

Major cities across the globe are eerily empty due to the current outbreak of COVID-19 but dancer Yara Al-Hasbani decided to take advantage of that and perform against some of Paris' iconic backdrops.

On the 37th day of the strict lockdown, the Syrian dancer performed a series of spectacular ballet moves in front of the deserted grand monuments of Paris including the Louvre museum, the Arc du Triomphe, Trocadero Square and the steps of Sacre Coeur.

Keeping in line with the health requirements, the 26-year-old danced around the empty streets wearing a white mask. According to The National, "It is really strange to see these monuments deserted," said the choreographer. She said it was wonderful "to admire the city without noise and tourists but at the same time it was sad, as if it was abandoned."
