Bringing Dance to New Heights: A “Waltz on the Walls” of Oakland’s City Hall

Bringing Dance to New Heights: A “Waltz on the Walls” of Oakland’s City Hall

The walls of Oakland’s City Hall transcended their usual purpose during the city’s 2014 Art+Soul festival, becoming the stage for a beautifully choreographed dance by aerial dance company Bandaloop. Filmed with a GoPro, “Waltz on The Walls of City Hall” captures Bandaloop dancers Amelia Rudolph and Roel Seeber as they take dancing to new heights (literally).

Founded in 1991, the Bandaloop dance company is known for their vertical choreography and they have performed on skyscrapers, in atriums and in locations as diverse as Seattle’s Space Needle and the wall of the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York. Watch the video above as the dancers gracefully twirl, jump and glide on the side of the 320-foot City Hall building. Visit the Bandaloop website for more information on the dance team.
