How strong do you have to be to pull off a choreographed dance on a climbing wall? These Colorado climbers/dancers look like they’re made from twisted steel and granite but have the grace of trained ballerinas.  Incredible contrast and probably the most Boulder thing I’ve seen in a while.

“With AscenDance Project, founder and artistic director Isabel von Rittberg gives birth to a new genre of dance that fuses rock climbing, music and choreography performed on a vertical wall. Without ropes or suspension, dancers use sheer strength to overcome gravity with grace, beauty and artistic prowess. AscenDance Project has given numerous performances across the nation and received international recognition in 2010 when the company reached the semifinals of NBC’s America’s Got Talent. Since then, AscenDance Project has performed in venues across the globe. In 2017, they performed at the Macky Auditorium for the 2017 TEDxBoulder.”

Here’s one they call “Upslope Get-Down”:
