My Background and Career
I have graduated faculty of German language , but my career has gone on a completely different direction. As a child I loved to dance and have been interested in dance. But my adventure with dance began rather late, as a teenager. Due to health problems, I could not continue to study dance, so all my strength, power and actions I directed to gain trainer’s license. So I became a professional sports trainer-instructor of ballroom dancing. At the same time i started working with children and youth. After a while, I decided to create my own club-School Dance Sport AKSEL, which has been running for nearly 20 years. Initially, to school attended about 20 people, currently trains nearly 80 licensed dance couples and dancers, recreational and hobby groups. At school, I am the manager / instructor, responsible for substantial form of learning. Apart from me, in school works also other instructors (our pupils). We cooperate with consultants and experts-world authorities in the dance, championship pairs are very particular about the development and improvement of skills of our students. In addition to training work, I organize the whole life of the school, decide the plans for trials, tournaments, working with parents and the coaching staff, I assure pedagogical and educational care.
Socially, for many years, I actively work for Polish Society of Dance-PTT-regional level, and recently I am the president in a branch Podkarpackie Voivodship and I am a member of the Presidium of the General Board.
Which kind of problems did you have to overcome to be where you are today? & Q6 What did help you the best in your trajectory? Deciding factors of success.
I always comprehend my work as a form of realization of my passion and love for dance, movement, people - it was a priority for me. Lead alone dancing schools, especially in the beginning it was not an easy task. A little bit stems from my personality traits, I'm a shy person, but also stubborn, constantly striving for the objective. On the other hand, I have to admit that from the very beginning I wasn’t oriented for profit and commercialism. In my business, priority is sports, artistic activities and social and that the way I manage to keep from this family and be economically independent-it makes me even more motivated for further action. To be successful in your actions need to be fully involved in it.
