Melanie López López started her dance education in classical ballet at an early age.

Being awarded a scholarship for artists in 2009, she moved to London to study at the world class London Contemprary Dance School where she completed a Master of Arts in Contemporary dance.


As a dancer, she is working since more than 10 years all over Europe with companies such as the National company of Ireland, Tanztheater Münster and Ballett Hagen (Germany), Sadlers Wells Theater (England), Peter Schaufuss Ballet (Denmark), Proyecto Titoyaya and Cienfuegos Danza (Spain) and worked with choroeographers such as James Wilton, Alexandra Pirici, Gustavo Ramírez Sansano, Gerda König, Henrique Rodovalho, Ravid Abarbanel or Javier de Frutos, amongst others


Her choreographic work takes as a central aspekt the person and society, looking for a personal vocabulary, that draws from the abstrakt representation possilbilities of the human emotions. She presented her work at the Stadttheater Münster, on a tour in North Spain as part of the Festival La RED IV as well as in unconventional spaces like the Weserrenaissance Museum (Lemgo), Ludgerikirche (Coesfeld), St. Paulus Dom (Münster), in the Festival Me, myself and I (Madrid) or the Ateneo of Cáceres (Spain), where she got a mention of honour for her work Raices Suspendidas.


Currently, she continues working with Gustavo Ramirez Sansano, co-created together with Freya-Maria Müller, the dance and theater piece vergissmeinnicht which was funded by the Kulturamt Münster and will be touring this Autumn and is developping various Projects with the Stadtensemble Münster.
