About our Instructors

Guest Instructors

Our roster has over 75 male and female dance professionals, with many having appeared on Broadway in shows such as Hamilton, Mean Girls, Wicked, Kink Kong, Pretty Woman, On Your Feet, and more.

In addition, many of our instructors have earned teacher training certifications from American Ballet Theater (ABT), The Bolshoi, Progressive Ballet Training (PBT) and have been on faculty at New York City's Broadway Dance Center, STEPS on Broadway, and The Ailey School

Our instructors are both experienced and highly trained, with an understanding of what challenges and nurtures competitive and non-competitive dance studios alike. 

"I can't thank Man In Motion and their instructors enough for the smiles and growth they have brought to my daughter."

He is also a founder, creative artist and choreographer of ACE Dance Concept that exists between New York and Paris. 

Łukasz shares with students his passion for movement and choreography appearing as a guest faculty at Joffrey Ballet School, Man In Motion and Kraków Choreographic Centre among others.

As part of his consciousness training he is studying practices such as yoga, meditation, breathwork and plant medicine. Łukasz studied sound healing with Don Conreaux, Aiden McIntyre, Kay Karl in Germany and Martha Collard in Hong Kong using Gongs and other instruments. Guided by the wisdom that comes from the sacred traditions of humanity, he hopes to bring more peace, harmony and self-understanding to everyone he meets on his path.
