Anula Kołakowska

A dancer, a choreographer, a dance captain and the founder of Tip Tap Dance School.

Since she was a little girl she have been learning various forms of dance. When she was 8 she finally got to know tap dancing – which was to become the biggest passion of her life.

In 2015 Anula received Heather Cornell scholarship and participated in a two-week course Manhattan Rhythm Tap Intensive in New York.

In 2016 she has worked as a choreographer on the production of Stepping Out (director: Krystyna Janda; Och-Teatr).

In 2019 she was learning and developing her skills in Professional Tap Training Program in Luthier in Barcelona.

Since three years she is teaching morning theme classes during the biggest tap festival in Europe, Stockholm Tap Festival.

She is trying to promote tap dancing in Poland, to break the stereotypes and to show that one can tap dance always – no matter the age, the music or the place.

Improvisation, expression, coordination, and technique – those are elements she attaches the biggest importance to.

Michał Wierzbowski

He started Tap Dancing at age of 7, and since that time he won Polish Championships several times. He also succeeded abroad winning 3rd place at the European Championships, and 10th at World Championships in 2017.

He performed at the biggest stages of Poland, creating choreographies for theater and TV.

In 2019, together with the Caro Dance Theater, he performed in South Korea with the performance of Romeo and Juliette.

In January of 2020, he was invited to perform with Tomasz Pałasz and Maciej Glaza at the New Year’s Gala in Kunming, China.

Since 2016 he has taught tap dancing at Tip Tap Warsaw, and since 2018 in Rampa theater.

However, his main focus in tap dancing is improvisation and freedom of creativity, movement and rhythm.

Filip Brzeziński

A dancer, a vocalist, a video editor and an aspiring musical theater actor. Currently, English Philology student in English Institute UW.

My tap dance adventure has begun fairly early in comparison with my teacher friends. I learned my first steps right here, in Tip Tap. Thanks to Anula and her school, I achieved most of my dance successes – 1st Place in Solo Adults 1 Tap Dance IDO Competition, for instance.

In less than two years of my tap dancing learning, I obtained a year-long scholarship for Escola Luthier in Barcelona. I perfected not only my dance skills (in styles such as tap, jazz and ballet), but also vocal and music skills.

When it comes to tap dance, I try to pay closer attention to music conscience – the placement of the dance steps within the music. Additionaly, I try to experiment with rhythmical variations.
