Fighting Gravity is a black-light illusion dance performance, featuring brothers from the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia. The original group was formed in early 2009 to compete for an annual university-wide philanthropic talent show competition. The show was held in order to benefit an organization called Service for Sight, which assists local residents who are sight-impaired. Without any kind of dance training or a choreographer, the performances brought the audience of over 2,500 into an uproar, and have since become an internet sensation. The name Fighting Gravity comes from the illusions they perform, which seem to defy the laws of physics. The group never expected to reach an international audience, and hope they can continue amazing audiences with impossible illusions that don't use any wires or special effects. Fighting Gravity hopes to represent the Virginia Tech community in a positive light after the tragic events of April 16th, 2007, as some of the group's members were students at that time. By competing on America's Got Talent, Fighting Gravity wants to inspire others by showing that through hard work, determination, and some good lighting, anybody can accomplish their dreams.
