On Saturday, 21 January from 6 p.m., the Academy hosted a New Year's reception for the staff for the first time. Under the motto "Body Feelings", there was an opportunity for music, chat and background information among friends. An anonymous sponsor provided exquisite culinary delights and a rhythmic programme. Our two new jazz piano teachers Ulrich Partheil and Nils-Marvin Teske gave their musical debut at the party. Standing ovations! Many thanks to Thomas Weiler for the tasteful musical accompaniment.
