Breaking Barriers

Lisa Engelken Breaking Barriers Breaking Barriers is a dance theatre, education and event company that builds community through the fusion of theatre and street dance culture. Drawing from elements of club dance, street dance battle and theatre storytelling, Breaking Barriers dissolves the wall between performer and audience by integrating dance, live music and site specific venues. Breaking Barriers began as an international performance project in 2018 between Denver’s cultural plan, Imagine 2020, Lisa Engelken (CO) and Maren Ellermann (UK). The company mission is to embody and preserve authentic club dance styles and contribute to the culture of street dance through storytelling of social issues through dance pieces.
