About Jana Korb

Update Corona epidemic:
As a performing artist, all my gigs, events, festival have been cancelled, or are hanging in the air, not knowing what will happen. Also our gym is closed, so I can't even teach.
So, I've decided to do live teaching videos - as most my students are stuck at home as well - AND WE NEED OUR BODIES TO MOVE!!!

About this Patreon page:
All of my posts will be public, as I want my content to be accessible for everyone. I understand your payments as an act of solidarity towards performing artists, whose biggest strength is creating and performing in the flesh. You will not get any special treatment like exclusive posts – but you will get my sincere gratitude, AND reduced / free tickets whenever you can make it to any of my shows!
