Anir Leben – About me

I am a Berlin based teacher and performer in Contemporary Dance, Improvisation, Contact Improvisation (CI) and Music. I received my graduation in Contemporary Dance, Improvisation and Performance at TIP, bewegungsart Freiburg 2013 and enrichened my knowledge in music and dance as a guest-student for Rhythmik at the UDK Berlin.

Stageworks as a dancer involve for example the „You and me - Project“ and „You have to“ which were both showcased in Freiburg.

My latest work involve music videos that I co-produced, danced and played music in.
I have given workshops, classes and one-on-ones around the globe and in Dance Festivals for the past 7 years. Recently, I founded the scoreJAM, a format for contemporary dancers to come together and practice improvisation in contact and in solo. In Berlin, I teach regular classes and workshops in different venues and settings, such as Marameo and Tanzfabrik and in the professional dance-education at danceworks berlin.

In my teaching, I highlight the improvising mind and the intelligently exploring body that is naturally released and ready if we let it. I encourage curiosity, self-responsibility and the investigative approach of each individual.
