Dance studio Toronto: Ania Przybyl
Ania has been dancing for more then 14 years. She first begun her journey fascinated by Ballroom in American Social style with particular affinity to Foxtrot and Chacha, then got passionate about Night Club Latin, namely Salsa and Club Chacha.
Her other dances of choice include Swing Dancing family – East Coast Swing and especially West Coast Swing. Currently she has been focusing her attention on Argentine Tango.
Ania’s specialty is technique of Flow and Body Dynamics of Following. Among her students she is particularly known and praised for her gentle touch and her patience.
When he was just another kid on the block about to start dance class at a community center, he did not suspect dancing would take him through kids dance formation team, Latin American Dance Formation competitive team, and a professional career of teaching in Canada, US, Europe and Hong Kong,
On top of the “typical dance studio” work, running dance events and guest teaching workshops, Adam has always tried to involve himself in community oriented projects like running kids competitive dance club in a community center, or teaching dancing to blind and blind and deaf. He has taught extracurricular courses for University of Toronto, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Poznan University of Economics and Poznan University of Physical Education dance clubs.

As a dancer and choreographer he’s had experience with amateur and competitive dance routines both for couples and formations, on set choreography and doubling for commercials, film, TV and music video, as well as on stage choreography, play-writing and directing for theatre and large stage productions.
He’s also had an academic experience as a teacher and a lecturer. His aptitude for teaching at an undergraduate level was first realized when he was briefly invited to teach ballroom dancing to students of Theatre program of Ryerson School of Theatre in Toronto and later at Post Secondary Vocalist College in Poznan.
