DANCE TEAMS WANTED!

We are touring once more and we want your dance group!

We have seen over 150 dance groups join us at our ‘Lock In’, ‘Demon Barbers XL’ and most recently our ‘Lock In Christmas Carol’ performances and we are on the lookout once again!

If you are dance group (Morris, Hip Hop, Clog, Sword, Appalachian, Street… any style) we’d love you to come down to one of our shows listed below and be a part of our pre-show dance display. Over 2000 dancers have performed in our displays in the past, bringing their high energy and fun vibes to kick off the evening!

We really appreciate all the support we get from local dance groups and would be delighted to feature each display group on our website. There is no pressure to stay and watch our show, however we can offer discounted tickets for many of the venues.

If this is something your dance group would like to be involved in please contact Laura at laura@thedemonbarbers.co.uk, we look forward to hearing from you!

 

The Demon Barbers XL ‘Disco at the Tavern’

28th July Kings Lynn Festival

 

The Lock In ‘Remixed’

13th August Artrix Bromsgrove

The Lock In ‘Remixed’ launches @ Wakefield Theatre Royal – 12th May

Fresh from their sell out performances of The Lock In ‘Christmas Carol’, the Breaking Tradition Dance Company return to Ye Olde Fighting Cocks for a comical new version of their critically acclaimed folk and hip hop dance show ‘The Lock In!’

With live music from The Demon Barbers (Winners of ‘Best Live Act’ @ BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards) they will be bringing some of the UK’s oldest forms of dance bang up to date with some of the youngest, in a high energy celebration of dance culture.

A group of hip hop dancers arrive at an apparently deserted pub, but local rumour has it that this tumble-down inn is frequented by other worldly characters and as the regulars arrive, a clash of cultures soon turns into a dance floor stand-off.

Combining elements from Grimms’ classic fairy tales with a funked up musical score and colourful new choreography, along with audience favourites such as ‘Hip Hop Morris‘ and ‘Pool Cue Longsword‘, The Lock In ‘Remixed’ promises to be one of the most exciting theatre events of 2017!

Fusion loving landlady, Grandma, is nowhere to be seen. She’s left the pub in the hands of the mysterious and stubborn Jasmine, who’s determined to stamp out the fun and keep things strictly traditional.

There is hope though, in the form of a mystical woodcutter who may just have some tricks up his checkered sleeve. Can the woodcutter succeed? Will the regulars get the party started? Will we ever find out what happened to Grandma?

Check out The Lock In ‘Remixed’ @ Wakefield Theatre Royal – 12th May to find out!

The Lock In ‘Christmas Carol’ photo gallery

Our new photo gallery is up! We had such a blast visiting theatres and spreading festive cheer up and down the country with our debut tour of The Lock In ‘Christmas Carol’. But just in case you missed it, you can check out all the snap shots from our tour here. Huge thanks go out to the very talented, Bryan Ledgard, who took these wonderful photos. Bryan is an incredible photographer, designer and artist, you can find more of his work on his new website. Bryan has supported our work for many years, helping us to publicise and promote our productions. He snapped our very first tour of The Lock In back in 2011 and has continued to support us by photographing many of our shows since. Bryan Ledgard, you are a legend!
