What started out as an idea for a local talent show quickly turned into an internet sensation. The group Fighting Gravity from Virginia Tech then gained worldwide attention thanks in no small part to placing 3rd out of over 100,000 contestants on the nation’s #1 summer primetime television series, NBC’s America’s Got Talent. Week in and week out, millions of viewers would cast their votes to keep them in the competition… and they never disappointed.
All thirteen performers, who have actually had zero performance experience among them before the group was even conceived, are intensely dedicated to securing the name of FIGHTING GRAVITY in the same breath as Blue Man Group, Stomp, and Cirque du Soleil.
After completing a successful nationwide tour, they have become one of the most sought-after live performance artists in the country. And at the end of 2010, FIGHTING GRAVITY was even invited to perform with platinum-selling recording artists Far East Movement on Dick Clark’s New Years Rockin’ Eve show.
Since then, the members of FIGHTING GRAVITY have been constantly working on new ideas to bring their show to another level not yet realized by their predecessors.
