Vertical dancing

Until now, I did not know of the existence of a sport called “vertical dancing” or “Bandaloop dancing.” But watching this video made me into a fan. Filmed during the Art + Soul Festival in Oakland, California, it shows two dancers demonstrating their grace on the side of the City Hall building.

My favorite bit: “I just landed on a window. Sorry!”

Hat tip to Karyn.

    Does anyone but me remember “Jitterbug Perfume”? There’s a dance in it called the Bandaloop (which is named after a tribe of people who have achieved great longevity). I suspect the naming is connected.

    Wow! It’s like they are dancing in zero gravity.
