“Hi my name is Rafał, I am an acrobat from Poland.”
Rafał is probably our most flexible contestant this year. A professional acrobat, competitive athlete and skilled dancer, his passion is all about moving, which has so far taken him to the quarter finals of Poland’s Got Talent, 4th place on Dancing with the Stars, and various medals on the athletics field. His future plans include building a presence in the world of modelling and continuing his charity work, which currently sees him performing at children’s hospitals and schools.
“Rzeszów is a beautiful town in the southern part of Poland. It’s quiet and idyllic climate makes it a perfect place to rest and recharge my batteries.”
