Project Description


Plays the folk bass and performs traditional dances. A co-founder of the “House of Dance” Association, for the last fifteen years he has taught traditional Polish dances at workshops in Poland and other European countries. An ethnology graduate, Piotr learnt to dance directly from original dancers of Polish villages and towns, as well as from archival sources. He has developed his own method of dance instruction and has authored and organised cycles of educational cultural projects connected with traditional music and dance. One of his proudest achievements was a project that revived Warsaw’s pre-war tradition of summertime open-air dances. Piotr co-operates with the Scena Lubelska 30/32 theatre as an actor and dancer. To date he has received four scholarships from the Ministry of Culture for conducting cultural activities.
