WHEN we talk about 'dropping into the Westgate Centre', this isn't what most of us have in mind.

Shoppers stopped in their tracks and watched in awe this lunchtime as a team of synchronised dancers performed a death-defying routine while hanging off the front of Oxford's new shopping centre.

The four costumed performers seemed to defy gravity as they ran, leapt and bounced off the vertical surface.

The stunt, part of this year's Dancin' Oxford spring festival, was performed by Gravity and Levity aerial dance company.
