A clash of folk and urban dance cultures that leaves you high on life!


‘A full-on show of such blazing energy and joyous ingenuity you scarcely ponder on the apparent madness of trying to marry folk dance and hip hop’
The Independent


Breaking Tradition is the UK’s leading folk and hip hop dance company. Founded by Artistic
Director Damien Barber, in 2005, the company has developed its own unique repertoire of folk and hip hop dance fusion.

It is this originality that has led to the company’s critical acclaim, gaining 4 and 5 star national
reviews for their high quality productions.

Affiliated to the BBC Radio 2 Award Winning ‘The Demon Barbers’, live music is an essential part of the company’s work.
