Bandaloop at Wellesley College

Whether dancing on an urban heritage site or hanging off cliffs in the Yosemite National Park, the company brings an extraordinary sensitivity to the site, combining aesthetics with a deep love and respect for the natural and built environment. All the dancers in the company’s current roster have a modern dance background, and receive rigorous training in strength and aerial technique to master the company’s signature vertical dance style. “They turn gravity sideways, tweaking an immutable law of physics with the illusory powers of a magician,” writes a Houston Chronicle critic.
This acclaimed and unique company will present six short (15-minute) performances during four days of public celebration, with live music performed by Wellesley music faculty. In addition to the six performances on Friday and Saturday, Bandaloop’s rehearsals will be visible throughout the week to passers-by. Sunday will be a rain date for all Bandaloop performances.
