IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, all tour dates and teaching periods in March/April/May have been cancelled.

Please stay in touch about updates on all remaining dates in the upcoming months, but most importantly stay healthy, stay home!

Love, M.

    Michael Loehr is a contemporary dancer who is collaborating with a number of international choreographers and companies. Enjoying the challenge to adapt to different surroundings and to switch between styles, his way of moving is characterised by both an emphasis on clarity and the joy of embracing the awkward. 


      Michael Loehr is a choreographer with a big interest in autonomous choreographic structures and a focus on discovering rather than executing. His creative skills are channelled in his own choreographies, a variety of projects that he accompanies as choreographic assistant as well as in numerous collaborations as a performer in works that require a choreographic vision.


        Michael Loehr is teaching contemporary dance classes and workshops for professional dancers and beginners alike. Passionately believing in the potential of sharing knowledge and ideas, he considers teaching an essential part of his artistic practice.
