Jennifer Carlynn Kronenberg
was born in Queens, New York where she trained with Teresa Aubel, Nicholas Orloff, Norman Walker, and Barbara Walczack; finishing her pre-professional training on scholarship at the School of American Ballet, which led to her being selected to join Miami City Ballet as an apprentice in 1994. She moved steadily through the ranks achieving the title of Principal dancer in 2001, and she remained with the company until 2016. As a writer, she was invited to contribute a “From the Heart: Why I Dance” essay, to DANCE Magazine’s April 2011 issue, and the first edition of her book entitled “So, You Want to be a Ballet Dancer?” has been published electronically by Diversion Books. The second edition was published in paperback by The University Press of Florida, immediately followed by a follow-up book she co-authored with her husband Carlos Guerra, “Experiencing the Art of Pas de Deux”. Ms. Kronenberg has served on the Advisory Board for Florida’s own World of Dance (Danz’n) Magazine, and has also served as a dance grant panelist for the the National Endowment for the Arts.
Ms. Kronenberg taught as an annual faculty member of the Miami City Ballet Summer Intensive Program, and has been an invited master teacher with numerous schools throughout the United States and abroad, including Conchita Espinoza Conservatory of the Arts, Ballet East, Florida Dance Conservatory, The Cary Ballet Conservatory, Ballet Concerto, Ballet Chicago, Ballet Arts of Jackson Tennessee, El Ballet de Monterrey Curso de Verano, New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, and Naples Dance Conservatory, among many others. Locally, she has also served on the adjunct faculty for Miami Arts Charter Schools, and is currently on staff at Miami Youth Ballet, while co-administrating and directing the Mandelstam Dance academy. Selected in 2020 as a “Turn the Spotlight Fellow”, she was publicly recognized as a 'strong female leader', actively shaping and developing the arts landscape in her community. She and her loving husband/professional partner, Carlos Miguel Guerra, are very proud to be the co-Founding Artistic Directors of South Florida’s young rising ballet company, Dimensions Dance Theatre of Miami, and look forward to continuing to steer the company toward success.
