ode of practice


Corena Strecker-Beitzel- modern jazz  

(TSC WEIß-BLAU, Bawaria) Corena for numerous years now trains dance formations on a real high standard. Her groups have won several tournaments and carry titles like 'Best performance of Young Dancers in all Southern Germany'. Her cheographies show mostly elements of Jazz and Modern Dance with original though harmonic personal supplements. On top of that she incorporates the wisdom of professionally medical and inter-social experiences in all her work.

Verena Klöpper- jazz, funky jazz

Verena was herself a dancer at the renommated dancing school 'IWANSON' in Munich. Nowadays she gives classes there as well as in other cultural centers. Her style of teaching is a mixture of Classical Jazz, Funky Jazz and HipHop. She is a professional pedagogue of dance but sure not that serious and settled as you would think from a person with that much knowledge of the international dance market. Her choreographies are unifying in style and still refreshing.
