Tereza Ondrová

undefined The VerTeDance group has been forming the shape of Czech contemporary dance scene since 2004. The founding members are dancers and choreographers Veronika Kotlíková-Knytlová, Tereza Ondrová and a light designer and technical director of the Ponec Theatre Pavel Kotlík. The Ponec Theatre also serves as their home stage. The group performs its pieces all around the Czech Republic and abroad. In 2005 the group was awarded the prestigious Sazka Award in the Surprise of the year category for their choreography ?Tichomluva - Neočekávaný chod".

Both Veronika and Tereza have been teaching for years courses of contemporary dance for adults and children. Together with Archa Theatre and Zahrada Culture Centre (Prague South Town) the VerTeDance group organizes courses of creative movement for children. Young performers are often involved in their own choreographies (The Brave, Třiačtyřicet slunce západů etc). The company is currently preparing a choreography in co-production with Archa Theatre, again engaging young kids, dealing with the issue of refugees as seen from a child's point of view.
