Breaking Funk Styles Hip Hop House Hustle

Axel “Micky” Schiffler started breaking in the mid-nineties and has worked as a professional dancer in Berlin since 2001. The uniqueness of his style lies in his musicality, rhythm, dynamics and variety of movement. Since 2010, he has been increasingly experimenting with fusing elements from various dance styles including funk, breaking, social and contemporary. He is always on the lookout for ways of incorporating new forms of expression without losing authenticity in his style. This desire to experiment has led him to take on a variety of work for clients including the Schaubühne (Berlin), Hans Otto Theater (Potsdam), the Schauspielhaus (Dresden), Hau (Berlin), Sophiensaele (Berlin), Theater du Capitole (Toulouse), Theater of Montevideo (Marseille) and the Maison de la Mutualité (Paris). Thus, he gained experience in both theatre as well as at various dance festivals such as Tanztage Berlin, Tanzwoche Dresden or 100 ° Festival Berlin. He has also enriched his expertise as a professional dancer performing for commercial events including AWD, Skoda, Microsoft Europe, Volksfürsorge Germany, Vodafone and Porsche Germany. In January 2015, his first dance piece “Meet Me as a Stranger” premiered in front of a sold-out crowd in Berlin. In the following years, he released several more short pieces such as “Duet to Third” and “Work in ProJazz”. Whatever the context, Micky constantly works according to the motto:

“Movement is language and there is nothing that cannot be communicated.”
