Tanztendenz München e.V. is the organizer and initiator of a series of projects that take place in the studios of the Lindwurmhof and / or were created especially for the venue schwere reiter.

Since 1995, the association has also published a quarterly dance calendar.


The format "side.kicks" has been in existence since 2013 and presents at schwere reiter productions by choreographers from the national and international networks of Tanztendenz München e.V.

"side.kicks" is not to be understood as a pure guest performance format, but is usually the final point of a longer, joint process. Invitations are extended to productions and artists who are connected through their institutional sponsors and partners Tanztendenz München e.V. or who have previously been guests in residence at the association.

"side.kicks" is a slender and flexible format that thinks and tries to support diversity on many levels. The aim is to preserve the visibility of diverse artistic styles, forms of organisation, financing models, concerns, strategies and to present them in an exemplary manner. In this way, the format provides for the Munich dance scene contacts to artists from abroad and allows for the audience insights into works that are not otherwise seen in the city.
