Two Dancers Just Pwned Gravity by Suspending Themselves from a Building

I am a professional dancer. No really, my other job involves not just performing, but also running and directing the Ballet Theatre of Indiana. That’s why this particular GoPro video caught my eye. Normally, GoPro videos are a shaky capture of some dude with a soul patch doing something “extreme,” but this wasn’t. This was dance, and yes, it was also extreme.

Every piece I’ve ever performed in or choreographed involved one or more people standing on the floor and doing cool stuff. Gravity, being what it is, gets pretty annoying. You can jump until your quads feel like they’re on fire, but it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to spend 10 seconds sailing through the air or manage more than three turns before hitting the ground. If you do manage the elusive triple saut de basque, it will no doubt be followed by the phrase “did anybody see that?” but I digress. These two dancers decided to give gravity the finger and just do what they want by simply picking a sideways floor, otherwise known as a wall, and dancing on that instead. The result is awesome and beautifully alien-looking.

Daddy like.
