Rafal Pustelny is a vibrant young dancer and teacher
who is passionate about all things dance! After relocating to NYC
in 2010 from Poland with his family, Rafal became addicted to the
authentic American Jazz dance forms Lindy Hop, Charleston and
Balboa, and quickly established himself in NYC as a top social
dancer. Seven years later, his wide knowledge and skill in various
styles placed him top in international competitions and opened many
opportunities to teach all over the states. Rafal works with
several regional performance groups including "Roddy Caravella's
Canarsie Wobblers," as well as dancing with the "Amazebals," the
"Big Apple Lindy Hoppers," the "Lindy Hop All-Stars," and the
"Vanaver Caravan." A Frankie Manning Foundation Ambassador, he also
teaches and performs with "You Should Be Dancing" studios and The
Harlem Swing Dance Society.
