With AscenDance Project, founder and artistic director Isabel von Rittberg gives birth to a new genre of dance that fuses rock climbing, music and choreography performed on a vertical wall. Without ropes or suspension, dancers use sheer strength to overcome gravity with grace, beauty and artistic prowess. Since the founding of AscenDance Project in 2006, the troupe has given numerous performances across the nation and received international recognition in 2010 when the company reached the semifinals of NBC’s America's Got Talent. Since then, AscenDance Project has performed in venues across the globe. In 2017, they performed at the Macky Auditorium for the TEDxBoulder and most recently presented their Premiere of ‘New Heights: Dancing on the Walls that Divide Us’ at the Dairy Center of the Arts in October 2019.
