As a dance teacher he has taught classical ballet, contemporary and contact & improvisation classes at Henny Jurriens Stichting, De Stilte Breda, Circle Rotterdam, Ballet Theater Augsburg, as well as in studios in Spain and Zurich.
Corneliu Ganea began his classical training in Vaganova style in Romania. However, throughout the years, his ballet technique has been influenced by various stiles such as Bournonville, Checheti Method, American and Cuban style. His class is constructed with the aim to warm up, place and strengthen the body, while allowing the dancer to work on technique and grace. He dedicates attention to details, technique, safety and coordination, among many other things.
