About us

Michael began taking Ballroom and Latin dance classes age seven and by age 14,  he had won the Junior Polish Championships.

From age 6, Jowita had tried her hand at different types of dance but it wasn’t until her parents took her to ballroom classes age 12 that she fell for it.

They met in 2013 at a dance summer camp in Krakow, Poland. Initially, they didn't like each other much but after one year of working together they fell in love, and to this day they are inseparable, having built up a very successful personal and professional relationship. They have represented Poland in many National and International competitions. In 2014, they became Polish Open Latin Champions.

Being on stage  was the most thrilling experience for them, so in 2015 they decided to end their competitive  career and join Burn The Floor. They’ve travelled around the world on cruise ships, performing every night for the guests. During that period they explored more about themselves, as well as starting to study tricks, lifts and other styles of dance.  They were part of Broadway Musical Productions like “Legally Blonde”, “Priscilla, “Queen of the Desert”, “Rock of Ages”.

After 4 years of travelling the world., they decided to move to London, to follow their biggest dream of becoming Strictly Come Dancing Professional Dancers.

In 2020, they won the BBC show “The Greatest Dancer” series 2. This gave them the opportunity to perform on Strictly Come Dancing, which was a stepping-stone to their dream.

In 2021, Jowita fulfilled her biggest dream and joined BBC Strictly Come Dancing.
