Christopher Roman was twice named Dancer of the Year by the critics poll in tanz magazine’s yearbook:


Arnd Wesemann, Berlin, tanz magazine: “Christopher Roman’s concentrated experience in Dance On, the company where only experience counts.”


Irmela Kästner, Hamburg, independent critic: “Christopher Roman/Dance On in Man Made by Jan Martens and in 7 Dialogues by Matteo Fargion – a limitless spectrum of dance, playfulness and embodied thinking.”
