Red Panda just may be the best halftime show on the planet. Rong Nui, a.k.a. Red Panda, is a fourth-generation acrobat who performs some seriously amazing stunts. Most of her tricks are performed on a sky-high unicycle — she can also flip and juggle plates without dropping a single one.
According to Complex, she learned these impressive feats from her father. When she came into the U.S. from China, she started performing at the Epcot Center in Disney World.
It didn’t take long before she made the shift into halftime shows. She currently travels all over the U.S. with her seven-foot unicycle, although she took two years off to care for her father.
After he passed on, she returned to performing, but each show holds more significance now that he’s gone. She says that she thinks of him every time she performs. Despite rumors of her retirement, she says she loves the challenge of performing, and has no plans to stop anytime soon.
