Monika Pyrgiel

Monika started dancing at the age of 12 at the dance studio “Syrena” in Warsaw after her mom signed her up for a ballroom dance group class. Since then it was a long journey filled with makeup, hairspray and excessive amount of bobby pins. At the age of 15 she achieved the highest dance class “S” recognized internationally as a highest champion level class. She was one of the youngest dancers in a country to achieve that level. She competed in over 300 dance competitions nationally and internationally placing in finals of most of them. One of her biggest achievements was winning a Grand Prix of Poland. In 2008 she moved to Chicago and found the dance studio across the street from her apartment which was former location of Interclub.  That’s how she met Erwin and Iwona. She started to teach at current Interclub’s location from the first day they opened. She is very happy that she can share her knowledge with dancers of any age and any level. She loves to inspire and encourage our students and help them to develop a love for dance.

In the following video you’ll see Monika and Erwin performing a dance routine that displays her world class talent.
