AscenDance Project is a dance company based out of Boulder, CO. Our troupe performs choreographed movement on a climbing wall. Without ropes or suspension the dancers use sheer strength to overcome gravity with style and fluidity. The company travels and performs with our portable climbing wall that is 24' wide and 12' tall. It can also be broken into single sections that are 8' wide and 12' tall.
Recently described as "Cirque du Soleil meets rock climbing" on Channel 9 News, our performers hail from a variety of backgrounds including ballet, gymnastics, parkour, ballroom and aerial. Since our appearance on NBC's America's Got Talent in 2010, AscenDance has received national recognition and a strong international following. Whether in theaters, convention centers or outdoor festivals: AscenDance Project adds an exhilarating element to the world of entertainment. The troupe brings energy, beauty and grace that has inspired across the nation.
