BANDALOOP friends who tuned in to the American Music Awards last night in the US spotted the global pioneers of vertical dance. Members of the dance company made a surprise appearance on the side of a downtown Los Angeles skyscraper with an iconic singer: Grammy Award-winner P!NK.
Teams quietly convened from around the US at a guarded location in Los Angeles to bring a daring idea to fruition: coach a brand new Bandalooper to dance on the side of a building with the company for a performance being broadcast to millions in less than a week. The result: fearless grace and beauty. P!NK and BANDALOOP dazzled with perspective changing dance, opening the hearts and minds of the audience - while P!NK sang her newest single "Beautiful Trauma" from the sky in a duet with BANDALOOP Associate Artistic Director Melecio Estrella.
Snippets of the performance of "Beautiful Trauma" are available here; see performance and behind the scenes photos here. Read more about the collaboration in ET here.

BANDALOOP sends appreciation and gratitude to fiercely wonderful P!NK and her team; the AMAs and Dick Clark Productions; Tait Towers; the JW Marriott and City of Los Angeles; Sozo Artists; and the dancers, riggers, and leadership who moved this legendary performance from idea to success.
