Cornelia Groeger, Acting and Vocal Coach, Co-Director

Cornelia Groeger is a seasoned actress and a lover of the performing arts. Born and raised in Kuwait with a bilingual fluency in English and German, she started acting at a young age and rediscovered her passion when she moved to New York, cutting her teeth on stage and film as the blue eyed brunette next door with a deep, dark secret, a heartbreaking cry and an infectious laugh. She trained under Matthew Corozine (MCS, NYC), Austin Pendleton (HB Studio, NYC), Rachel Jones and Howard Meyer (HM Acting School, NY). Cornelia moved to Germany in 2020 and when not on set or stage, she is excited to be working as an acting/vocal coach and director at the WPAC.
