Meet Shem Jarosiewicz
Shem’s dancing adventure began at the age of 7, when he asked his parents to sign him up for ballroom and latin dance classes at his school in Ilawa, Poland. Quite quickly, he realised that this was to be his passion and profession in life and so, set about making his dream a reality. At the age of 15, he got invited to the Polish Ballroom Formation Team and became part of the National Team with whom, he won several Polish Ballroom Formation Championships as well as the World Ballroom Formations Vice-Champion in 2005. When he was 19, he decided to take his dancing further and moved to Norway, where he successfully won a multitude of national competitions.
Seven years ago, Shem’s dancing career took him to London. He is currently trained by the best coaches in the world such as Graham Oswick, Lynn Harman and Sammy Stopford (former multiple Latin-American World Champion). Together with his current dance partner Loren James, they represent England in all major national and international competitions around the world. They are currently ranked 3rd in the UK in Professional Latin and have their eyes firmly set on the number 1 position!
Shem is a very friendly, experienced ballroom and latin teacher, who loves to share his passion with the students. He is also trained in Colombian Salsa and Zumba and will often teach at Salsa Calena (www.salsacalena.co.uk). He is also a very experienced private dance instructor, who is also able to choreograph wedding dances and is available for dance shows across the UK, and abroad.
