Members of the vertical dance company BANDALOOP take romantic looks to new heights – for no other than Harper’s Bazaar, dressed in Etro, Ralph Lauren and Chanel. A sight for sour eyes by women who dare!

A pioneer in vertical dance performance, BANDALOOP seamlessly weaves dynamic physicality, intricate choreography and the art of climbing to turn the dance floor on its side. Founded by choreographer and artistic director Amelia Rudolph, BANDALOOP’s indoor/outdoor work has been presented in theaters and museums, on skyscrapers, bridges, billboards and historical sites, in atriums and convention halls, in nature on cliffs, and on screen.

They say what we do is death-defying. I’d say it’s life-affirming“. – Amelia Rudolph, Founder/Artistic Director

And, of course, BANDALOOP honors nature, community and the human spirit by bringing dance to new audiences, activating public and natural spaces, and re-imagining what dance can be.

By very far, the most inspiring thing I’ve seen lately! Enjoy every second of it!
