LEMON SPONGE CAKE CONTEMPORARY BALLET was founded in 2004 by international dancer/choreographer Robert Sher-Machherndl and partner Jenifer Sher. Its mission is to bring new concepts and realities to the field of dance and its audiences, via the performance of new work, new choreography that takes risk, and express the unpredictable and unexpected. Robert Sher-Machherndl integrates ballet technique with contemporary movement to become a powerful vehicle to depict modern life. The results are strikingly imaginative, intensely emotional, thought provoking and distinctly progressive. Lemon Sponge Cake has toured in the United States and Europe and received critical-acclaim nationally internationally, noted for an uncompromising artistic vision, signature choreographic style, highly-skilled performers and collaborators.
