Delicate, emotional, energetic—Pole loves it all

I’ve been dancing since I was a little kid. I created little performances for my family, and I made everyone watch them. When I was six years old, my parents signed me up for dance classes, and that’s how it all started.

Since that time, a lot has changed, but dance is one of the things that stayed with me. It always makes me happy and helps me relax. I call myself an artist, because dance is truly a beautiful art. It can be very delicate and emotional, but it can also be very energetic. I love that through dancing I can truly express myself and show my thoughts to others.

Dancing is a big part of my life, and I’m proud that I can share my talent with you.

One of my favorite things about dancing is the community it creates. It’s hard to describe, but just dancing with other people can be very emotional. Seeing their interpretations of music and movement is an amazing experience.

Since I started my dance journey, I have been part of many different projects. I have performed in dance groups, duos, and solos. I was a performer at many different national and international competitions. I won many different prizes and was honored to dance with many dancers from different backgrounds. I also performed at the opening ceremony of the European Games 2023. That was a very valuable experience.

I’m really grateful for all the opportunities that I have, and I am always happy to do what I love. Dancing is a big part of my life, and I’m proud that I can share my talent with you.
