Anika Bendel studied international arts management at the 'Center for International Arts Management' (CIAM) at the college for music and dance in Cologne. She successfully completed this study with a thesis on "Influences, Controversies and Potentials of German-Iranian Cultural Work".

Since then she has been working as a freelance art manager for independent dance companies, including MOUVOIR/Stephanie Thiersch and the DIN A 13 tanzcompany, as well as for various festivals (tanz.tausch festival Köln and Colors International Dance Festival Stuttgart). She advises and supports newcomers with the first applications.

The umbrella organization Tanz Deutschland supported Anika Bendel in 2018 with a coaching grant for the development of the area of (inter-) national distribution. Anika Bendel and the freelance cultural manager Mechtild Tellmann are implementing this for the companies DIN A 13 tanzcompany and MIRA performance.

In 2018/2019 she was the first managing director of the Freie Tanz- und Theaterszene Stuttgart gUG.
