Red Bull Flying Bach: Where Classical Music Meets Break Dance

Think Bach and breakdance don’t go together? In Red Bull Flying Bach, they do.

Reppin’ for our Sway’s Universe squad, I had the privilege of hopping over to San Fransisco to watch The Flying Steps dance to classical music like I had never seen below — and as the the Red Bull fam eloquently put it, “in a one-of-a-kind, innovative adaptation that breaks down the barriers between high society and urban culture.”

Their performance told a beautiful and colorful story that translates clearly in any language, especially that of dance.

“The story follows six dancers and one teacher, rehearsing for their big day. Arguments, fights, disappointments and delights — just like the highs and lows of the notes, the moods and steps of the dancers change constantly. But their teacher is pushing them, pushing the boundaries to make it work. As a mysterious woman enters the rehearsal room, the conflicts climax: contemporary dance meets breakdance, man meets woman, desire meets refusal, and arrogance meets curiosity.”

Truly one-of-a-kind and refreshing. Take a look at their tour schedule and cop a ticket to this spectacular show — definitely worth it. Head over to for more!
