These Dancers Go Vertical For Oakland’s Art Festival

Taking dance to the next level is something the Bandaloop dance company takes literally. The company specializes in “vertical dance,” where dancers are suspended via cables so that they can dance on the walls of buildings, suspended over their audience. So besides the intricate choreography that goes into a traditional performance, the Bandaloop dancers also appear to float weightlessly in the air. From the ground, it looks as though they are on a horizontal surface, and the Matrix-style leaps and flips seem to defy gravity. 

Two Bandaloop dancers, Amelia Rudolph and Roel Seeber, recently performed “Waltz on the Wall” on the side of City Hall in Oakland, CA, for the city’s annual Art + Soul festival. Rudolph captured the dance on a GoPro, lending a thrilling first-person perspective to the performance–they’re really high up!
