A modern dance company that's been performing -- and blowing minds -- since 1971, Pilobolus proves that the human body is the most eloquent and magical of all mediums. The company's famed for its innovative contortions, requiring incredible strength, agility and flexibility, and they've been featured everywhere from Oprah and 60 Minutes to Late Night with Conan O'Brien and Sesame Street, not to mention performing to acclaim on the 2007 Academy Awards broadcast.
