The initiative Bad Lemons provides continuous affordable professional contemporary dance training in Munich. Priding ourselves in bringing exciting internationally reputable artists to teach in Munich.
The series of classes takes place once a month, from Monday to Friday, 9.30am – 11am in the studios of Tanztendenz Munich e.V.
Each of these week-long training blocks is taught by a different international guest teacher and takes place at a high, professional level. The continuation of affordable professional training in Munich enriches and strengthens network structures and artistic exchanges both within Munich and with foreign international dancers and choreographers.
The continuity of professional training facilitates the Munich contemporary dance scene to stay vibrant and current. Strengthening the community of dancers and choreographers by providing a regular meeting place. Promoting a lively, collaborative scene.
Bad Lemons training follows the momentum of Munich DancePAT which offered professional training to the community 2016-2018 and was co-directed by Jasmine Ellis & Katrin Schafitel. Bad Lemons strives to continue this good thing for the community.
Bad Lemons – Research Project
Due to the high demand for a more intensive cooperation with the visiting artists. Bad Lemons will strive to offer studio residence for the visiting artists to exchange, research and create on/with local Munich artists.
Visiting artists have access to a ‚Bad Lemons – community’ of local Munich artists working in the field of dance, from which they can select individuals for joint work. The results of this work can ideally be presented publicly at the end of the residence.
