Sopot is a major health-spa and tourist resort destination and it lies between the larger cities of Gdańsk and Gdynia, with a population of approximately 40,000. It is located in Pomeranian Voivodeship, and has the status of the county, being the smallest city in Poland to do so; I highly recommend to visit it if you are in Poland. 

For the Dancers and their Cities project, I had the opportunity to develop two sessions: the first, with the ballet student Jessica Kikowska, we started the session at the train station and we ended up our session by the shore of the Baltic Sea. The second session was with the ballet student Blanka Ukarma and we toured some of the main locations in the city center and also the famous wooden pier by the Baltic Sea. It’s still a city that I would love to come back to develop a few more sessions since I believe there is a lot more to show.


Date of the session: August of 2021

Dancers: Jessica Kikowska and Blanka Ukarma.
