check out some shots below from the Dallas Block Party and Bandaloop

In celebration of Dallas Arts Month, the Dallas Arts District, the largest of its kind in the country, is closing down Flora Street on Saturday, April 22 for the Changing Perspectives Block Party! Stop by for a full day of fun activities for the whole family, complete with free admission and access to several museums, performing arts venues and restaurants.

Bandaloop aerial artists have been flying for nearly three decades now. Their performances are staged in theaters, on buildings, on towers, and on mountainsides all over the world. In Yosemite National Park the dancers performed on a cliff face 2,500 feet in the air.

This is their second trip to Dallas, with founder and artistic director Amelia Rudolph still excited to share her original vision with audiences.

“A sense of joy, a sense of wonder,” Rudolph said. “A moment when the show is going on, they have a moment where they kind of can’t believe what they’re seeing, not in like a ‘Ripley’s Believe it or Not’ sort of way, but in a change of perspective sort of way. Like I didn’t know dance could be that way, that kind of feeling.”

So, if you see six elegant artists suspended from the side of a 19-story building, don’t be alarmed. You can call it death-defying. They call it life-affirming: one intricate death-defying, life-affirming movement at a time.
