A director, choreographer, and performer, Amelia Rudolph is best known as the founder of the dance company BANDALOOP, whose trailblazing fusion of postmodern movement, rock climbing technology, and a spirit of adventure is world-renowned. Her work initiates a shift of perspective and ignites a sense of possibility.

Seen by millions in various formats, including film, commercial, and social media, her work has been presented on Great Performances/PBS, the David Letterman show, 20/20, Good Morning America, and CBS Sunday Morning, among others. It has also been featured in many national publications, including the Smithsonian Magazine, LIFE, and The New York Times Magazine. Her current offerings include choreography and performance, experiential education, informal consulting, and public speaking, drawing on three decades of creation and performance experience to find fresh ways to inspire and connect us through movement and rigor.

“Amelia not only creates riveting, internationally-acclaimed dance works that literally defy gravity, she also works in the field to help others advance.”

Sarah Crowell, Former Artistic Director at Destiny Arts Center, Oakland, CA
